The GRACE Community Garden is in full bloom for the spring, and we are calling all families to take part in Family Gardening Day on Saturday, April 8.

This month’s volunteers were hard at work, planting 27 pounds of potatoes, 72 cabbages and 800 onions—all in under three hours!

Volunteers are putting their green thumbs to good use on St. Patrick’s Day weekend by planting squash, melons, corn and peppers. Families are invited to continue their work for the April workday, where volunteers will weed the nightshades plot, plant cucumbers and mulch new walkways.

Garden workdays are rewarding, feasible opportunities to help local families in a tangible way. Having access to fresh fruits and vegetables is a game changer for families, for whom fruits are a rare luxury and nutrition is key.

The GRACE Community Garden provides an average of 1,800 pounds of fresh, organic produce each year to nourish families in need.

Get some family friends together to plan for the Family Gardening Day April 8.
