The Williston Community Builders is an organization dedicated to finding ways to improve Williston and make it better and more inclusive for everyone.

Their Community Garden is a heartfelt project spearheaded by former Williston Community Builders president Nick Lippert, and witnessing it blossom into reality is truly remarkable. It's a great opportunity to connect with your neighbors, enjoy the outdoors, and celebrate the start of something green and beautiful in our community.

Come celebrate the opening of the Williston Community Builders community garden with a Williston Area Chamber ribbon cutting ceremony!

Date: Friday, May 17
Time: Noon
Location: 815 Highland Dr E, Williston (Directly East of the Jimmy John's parking lot, off of East Dakota Parkway!)

What to Expect:

  • Ribbon Cutting Ceremony: Be there at noon for the official ribbon cutting with local leaders and community members.
  • Garden Tours: Explore the garden plots and see the layout.
