1003151635 (1)The potluck party was a delicious success. Some 30-40 resident families used garlic, herbs and vegetables from the Community Garden to create dishes for all to enjoy.

Thanks to all who donated much-needed funds, in addition to their time, their food, their hospitality and other crucial resources. The garden would not exist without your generosity!

Donations for this fundraising drive will be accepted through the end of October. Cash or checks (payable to CVOI) can be submitted to Deb VanWetering (225 Adams St Apt 12A) or to the 215 Adams St. management office. We have celebrated the success of this season but we must look ahead and secure resources for the next season. Suggested donation is $10. per family, but any amount will be greatly appreciated. (Garden members are asked to pay annual dues of $25 per family, plus mulch and more.)
