Come play in the Garden!

Everything’s coming up roses in the Julia V. Morris Centennial Garden…as well as beets, carrots, radishes, and much, much more!  The hard-working Garden volunteers are well on their way to beating last year’s record of 3,100 pounds of fresh produce grown for the Food Bank, and they could use all the help they can get!  Click here to read more about who they are and what they do, and here is the link for the Garden’s July News and current volunteer opportunities.
