Hope House recently planted its community garden on June 1.
The garden provides Hope House with fresh produce for its clients. This is the third year that Hope House has supported the community garden, which was initially started by Katie Roy, for her Girl Scout Bronze Project. Tomatoes, beans and strawberries are among the different types of vegetables that are grown in the garden and then brought to Hope House to be distributed to different recipients. Typically, Hope House assists 75-85 families every week.
“Hope Garden is a wonderful way for the Webster community to support people in a time of need,” said Margery Morgan, Hope House director. “We want to make offering healthy choices a priority for our recipients. The whole community pitches in to make sure that our clients have access to fresh-from-the-garden produce to feed their families.”
Hope House is looking for volunteers to help take care of the garden throughout the summer, as well as to join in the initial planting on June 1. Hope House always welcomes in-kind donations of gardening tools, as well as financial assistance to keep the garden running.
