Teaching Garden Success Story: Catholic Charities
March 16, 2010 § Leave a comment
We’ve heard from clients about a desire to grow and eat fresh, local vegetables, but that it’s sometimes difficult to do. Community gardens may be unavailable in their area, or have a long waiting list. Apartment life can limit the variety of vegetables and herbs that can be successfully grown. We’re proud of our success with the Teaching Garden program to help our Partner Agencies provide fresh local produce to their clients.
Check out what Catholic Charities of Central Texas has been able to do with its Angels of Hope Food Pantry Garden:
Our teaching garden looks great, thanks to the many volunteers who help us with its care and feeding. This weekend, volunteers kicked off the spring growing season by weeding, cleaning and planting.
We think you should join us and plant a garden of your own. Or better yet, volunteer with your local agency to help plant and maintain a garden.
What are your garden plans this season?
