On Saturday, May 23 – in the rain – we broke ground for the community garden in the Cannon River Mobile Home Park. Nine families will have small plots this year (10′ x 10′) right in their own neighborhood. The tenth plot will be tended by the children who participate in the summer programming in the neighborhood.
If you have any gardening supplies that you would like to donate, please contact Growing Up Healthy. We are specifically looking for: a large (1000 gallons or more) water tank; a small shed for storing tools; various garden tools; and fencing to surround the garden.
