What a great day at the Garden Patch! Friday's Planting Party kicked off with announcement of a $50,000.00 donation from Cargill to support the Garden Patch! This support comes at a critical time and allows us to forge ahead with great ideas to grow beautiful fresh produce and build our community in the process. The quest for food security is a both a public and private battle. With Cargill’s generous support, we can send the message that food security is a shared responsibility that begins in our own communities.
Later on dozens of dedicated Garden Patch volunteers and teams rolled up their sleeves to plant. After much hard work we rewarded our efforts with a potluck BBQ.
Thank you to everyone for giving your time, your energy and your resources to make a difference in the lives of people in our community. We appreciate you so much!
