A Speciality Crop grant through the Wyoming Department of Agriculture, allowed for a team from the University of Wyoming Extension Office, led by Jeff Edwards, to travel to Sheridan this week to build a 16’x32’ hoop house on the future site of the Woodland Park Garden, adjacent to Woodland Park Elementary School. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the story.


Rooted in Wyoming Executive Director Bonnie Gregory said the Woodland Park Garden project began as a partnership between the Sheridan Research and Extension Center and Rooted in Wyoming last fall. A proposal to Whitney Benefits and The University of Wyoming, was made by Brian Mealor, Director & Associate Professor for the Extension Center, to allow the use of a portion of the leased land on the Adams ranch, north of the Woodland Park School grounds, as a potential Rooted in Wyoming youth garden site.

Gregory talks about how Rooted in Wyoming, which is led by an all-volunteer staff and board of directors, is dedicated to building and nurturing school and youth gardens in Sheridan County.

Gregory said this first phase of the Woodland Park project consists of the hoop house, perimeter fencing and supplying water to the site. She said the Woodland Park Garden is a collaboration between the Sheridan Research and Extension Center, The University of Wyoming, Whitney Benefits, Sheridan County School District #2, Woodland Park School, Woodland Park PTO and Rooted in Wyoming.
