Donated Garden Plot + Donated Plants + Donated Time = Food Pantry Harvest

Read how the Rochester community came together to raise organic vegetables for those in need.

The following news was submitted by Dinosaur Hill Nature Preserve.

Sometimes when you are working on a project, all the right pieces seem to fall into place.

That was the experience of organizers of the Rochester Community Garden. According to Sue Neal, Executive Director of Dinosaur Hill, the organization that operates the community garden “we were hoping the garden would become not only a place for our community members to grow produce organically for their families but a place to make new community connections”.

One such community connection grew almost as organically as the vegetables that grow in the garden.

This spring all of the garden plots were reserved so the garden was full when organizers were contacted by a local service club interested in planting a plot to grow produce for donations.

Well done by all--they deserve recognition for helping. Kudos to all of them, the employees, businesses, Council member, Girl Scouts and all the residents for their generosity in helping to fill a need in our community. The efforts are greatly appreciated and do not go unnoticed or unappreciated.
