Cornstalk fundraiser for Goat Fund

       Bundles of cornstalks will be available from the Bear Creek Community Garden the next two Saturdays, in exchange for donations to the Goat Fund.
       The Bear Creek Garden Association (BCGA), which works the two-acre organic garden off 21st and Rio Grande streets in an agreement with El Paso County Parks, hopes to raise enough money to bring the goats back next year to cut down weeds in a roughly 20-acre area bordering the garden this year, according to Char Nymann, president of the non-profit group.
       A minimum donation of $4 is requested, she said. The times both Saturdays (Oct. 6 and 13) will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
       For more information, call 473-5827.
