Delano Neighborhood Association

A newly formed advisory committee for Wichita’s Delano Neighborhood, just west of downtown, has its first public input meeting Monday night.

The city formed the Delano Plan Advisory Committee in July to help guide the development of a new neighborhood revitalization plan.

Farmers’ markets are now open in several parts of Wichita, including one in the Delano neighborhood that has a library that isn’t meant for books.

For the second year in a row, a seed library will be available at the Delano Farmers’ Market on Wednesday evenings.

The library was established to let gardeners share and try out new seeds.

Many of them were donated from El Dorado Heirloom Seeds and include a large variety of non-genetically modified seeds including beans like the Eye of the Goat and tomato varieties such as Rutgers and Arkansas Travelers.
