Another Argenta Garden Sprouts

Another Argenta Garden Sprouts

First Presbyterian Church in Argenta would like to thank all who came out in the heat this past Saturday to help build our community garden. We had church members, People Tree volunteers and neighbors working together to make it happen. A great community effort befitting a community garden.

If you would like a plot to garden or if you would like to donate a plot for someone else to use, please e-mail Anne at revruss@gmail.com. About one-third of the plots are already spoken for. It's a project for everyone to get involved. Special thanks to NLR Fit2Live program and The People Tree for helping make this garden a reality. Next step is NLR water to put in a spigot, then time to start planting!
