Garden Updates

The community garden beds are up and growing! Many plants are really taking
 off and we are preparing for a good harvest. Fence mending has been done to keep our furry visitors out. Thank you to the YMCA mentors and Grant Elementary School 4th graders for teaming up to weed the perimeter of the garden at Good Shepherd. If you happen to be in the area, stop in and see how their gardens grow!
