Our Second Year of the Migros Aid Garden

For the second consecutive year, we are growing vegetables in 27 garden beds that were built in 2019.   We are going to have another 10 beds added in 2020 making a total number of 37 raised beds.    The garden will be a way to also mentor young people in a summer work program and work alongside a mentor. 

Some families have their own garden beds to tend, and what is grown in the others will be distributed to the refugee and immigrant community.  Volunteers from around the city came out to work alongside other volunteers and refugees to prepare the beds and plant the seeds. We also received a donation of 1,000 tomato plants, which was more than we can use, so some of those were given to others in the community.
