A little help for our friends

Kids Garden Project needs your support!

The Master Gardener Fall Class of 2017 is helping the Coleman Park after school kids learn to grow their own food and we are in need of some herb donations for the garden. Many of these children aren’t always sure where their next meal will come from and the garden will give them food to take home for their families to enjoy and teach them how to grow their own food at home. A farmer donated vegetable seeds but the kids want to grow herbs too. If you have some extra seeds or some cuttings you can donate to the garden please contact Chris Radentz at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (561) 889-8343 or bring your donation to the September or October EHS meeting. We will have someone at these meetings to pick up any donations. If you are interested in volunteering to help with the garden project please contact Chris at the contact information above. We thank you in advance for your help with this community project!
