This weekend we partnered with Garden to Table and the Downtown Streets Team to engage community members to volunteer and help clear out our next neighborhood community garden.

A wonderful couple shared their backyard for three households to transform into a neighborhood garden.

These households and community members will be determined in the coming weeks. Each household will receive materials, guidance, and assistance to grow a successful organic garden free of pesticides and chemicals.
