You can grow your own food. And we can help!

A Free Little Library at the garden

May 28, 2013



We are right in the middle of it….. growing season!

And, what a wonderful growing season it will be!! We have formed new partnerships with Northwest Community Healthcare, Ware Landscaping and Thrive Vineyard Church. Together with our partner agencies from the previous year, we will be able to bring healthy produce to the tables of many underserved, low income families in our area. 

Other exciting things at the garden:

Our opening day, as mentioned is on May 18th. We are thankful for Ware Landscaping in helping us till and mulch the area, and to Thrive Vineyard Church who is providing lunch and craft time for the children so that parents can help plant. Thank you to our many other generous partners who help with plants, financial support, tools, seeds, the green house and so much more! Without you, this garden would not be possible. 

Tiny Philanthropists:

We received a special visit from Virginia Lake Kindergartners and their wonderful teacher. The kindergartners donated plants that they grew from seeds. Their mandate to us as they left cheerful and giggling : “take good care of our little plants”. We will little green thumbs, we promise we will. Thank you for sharing your plants with our community. 

We will soon be on the map at Little Free Library.  We have been working diligently to finish our Little Free Library for our opening day: May 18th. If you have not heard of the Little Free Library, stop in and check out their website. Not only are the little libraries cute, they open the doors to adventures for both young and old. Because after all, “If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.” - Cicero

Keep those thumbs green and those hands dirty!
