The Township will launch its annual effort to grow fresh vegetables for our Food Pantry.  We need your help on planting day, Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 9:00am until noon.  If you can spare an hour or three, please join us.

 

Volunteers are needed to help with the tools, lend advice, and plant the Township plot.

 

The Health Department program families will be on site as well to plant their own plots. 

 

Throughout the summer regular volunteers are needed to water, weed and later to harvest the vegetables for the Township Food Pantry.  Times and schedule are completely flexible, however an orientation session is necessary.

 

Please plan to join us.  Dress to get dirty and bring work gloves and tools if you have them.  We will provide instruction, gloves and tools.

 

Thanks to the Park District of Highland Park for their partnership in this endeavor, and to Craftwood Lumber for helping with supplies and Anton’s for help with plants.

 

Donations of vegetable seeds or seedlings are always very welcome.
