Friends of the Homeless Garden Work Day
Come help at the Friends of the Homeless Community Hope Garden Saturday, June 30 from 8am-1pm!
Located on the corner of Carpenter and Main Street, the garden was initiated in 2009 when members of the community and Friends of the Homeless created an idea that would bring community to the area. The concept was “Growing Green”, a community garden that would give the residents of the shelter, members of the community and volunteers an opportunity to meet, work and learn about each other. Through the practice of gardening, individuals would have the opportunity to interact in a way that extended beyond the traditional role of contributor and benefactor. It would be a place where individuals could work as equals, regardless of their past and their current housing arrangements.
Growing Green provides tangible benefits. The garden provides food & it enhances the beauty of the neighborhood. Growing Green exists through the effort, ideas and contributions of members of the community. We appreciate your support in making this concept a reality.
