Community Garden Work Day April 12

With Earth Day coming up, and lots of exciting plans for the Community Garden to announce (watch for a post soon), we are having a Community Work Day this Saturday from 1 to 3. 

Bring a water bottle and your strong arms to the corner of Park and Canton.

Here's a photo of the most recent planting of bell peppers, which are planted in what we call the "donation plot" which is being maintained by volunteers and the produce is distributed through various Stewpot programs.

Garden Work Days

Our FPC Encore Park Urban Farm/Community Garden will hold two Garden Work Days:

  • Saturday January 25 from 1 PM until 5 PM 
  • Saturday February 1 from 1 PM until 5 PM 

We need your assistance to help prepare our existing garden bed for a spring planting of organic carrots, potatoes, etc. These crops from our "urban farm" will be used by the FPC food services provided at the Second Chances Cafe at The Bridge and for distribution to families served by The Stewpot.

Please dress appropriately and bring your own pair of gardening gloves.  Garden tools will be provided as well as light snacks and water.

The garden is located south of the 508 Park building at the corner of Canton and Park.  

Please join us there on either or both of these dates!
