The kids gardening program is ending this month and was very successful, . Community Action Services and Food Bank was lucky enough to get a Summer Associate VISTA, Matthew, who ran this program. He taught the kids basics about gardening while they grew a Salsa garden, and then they played fun games.
We are also lucky because I have received word that the Community Garden will be able to remain in this location next year!! This is very exciting, because it is such a great location because most of the gardeners are located within the apartment complex that it is located!
