The Gathering Place has launched a new initiative called “Adopt a Garden”. Locals can adopt a flower, an edible plant, or a garden bed to be grown in the soup kitchen’s community garden. Flowers are $25.00, edible plants are $50.00, and a garden bed is $100.00.
One-hundred-per cent of those donations go towards to the garden and the upkeep involved.The Gathering Place is hoping to grow over 1000 pounds of food this season to serve to those in need. You can participate in the adoption program by visiting www.canadahelps.org.
