HOPE CENTER NEWS

 

GREEN POWER MAY 24 GARDEN UDATES

 

     Come out and join us.  See our new Shed!!

Tuesdays and Thursdays, (5:30 to 7:30)

 Anytime a group is scheduled (see Google calendar)

 

 Last week Thursday was our first work night in the garden.  Lots of activity—beautiful weather-- A wonderful first week!   We welcomed Marissa, Tyler and Linda, new volunteers who found our garden on the internet.  Our shed was completed on Friday and our first group came out on Saturday.  Sunday donated plants were picked up and Monday another group came to plant. 

 

Thank you

 

Hope Center and volunteers who donated and built the NEW garden shed.

 

St. Mary’s Church Youth Group in Dousman for growing and donating plants

 

St. James Church in Menomonee Falls for growing and conating plants

 

Sunbeam Kids and Waukesha North High School Groups for working in the garden

 

And, thank you Internet for helping to share our mission of teaching people about growing food and providing fresh healthy food to those less fortunate. 

 

Come on out and be a part of the action.  Spend as much or as little time as you have available.  All are welcome.  Tuesdays and Thursdays are regular work days from 5:30 to 7:30 (weather permitting).  With training and permission, you may come on your own schedule (contact Molly).  Volunteers are welcome anytime a group is scheduled.  

 

 We are hoping for big things from our small garden this year.  Help us surpass 5,000 lbs of food to combat food insecurity and help those in need.  Our garden is supported solely by volunteers and donations from our community.    

 

 Please let us know if your company would like to sponsor a fund raiser to support Green Power Garden.  

  The Garden is located in Southeast Waukesha County: S46W22996 Lawnsdale Road.

 The garden is found just off CTH"I" and Milkyway Road in the Town of Waukesha

 DONATIONS ARE WELCOME

In addition to volunteering, the garden is always in need of new or used garden supplies such as hand and power tools, stakes for tomato plants and old bed sheets used for tying plants.  We are happy to take your old blue recycling bins.  Cash donations to support the port-a-potty rental and other garden needs are greatly appreciated.  Please contact us if you have anything we might be able to use.
