Fort Bend Green has been helping the County Judge’s office, in partnership with Lucille’s 1913, to promote the community gardens initiative¬†at Bates Allen Park in Kendleton. A ribbon cutting was held, in conjunction with a Juneteenth celebration, on June 18, 2022. The community garden will take up 10 acres of the 200+ acres at the Park. The park was used as farmland long before it became a park in the 1970s. The County provided the land for Lucille’s 1913 to create and manage the gardens
