Time bank, church plant for pantry

St. Augustines Episcopal Church would like to thank Laura Brooks and the AHA Time Bank members, PJ, Adam, Annie, Lia, Lynne and Paul for their kind help June 9 with the garden. We were able to move new dirt into beds, build and line berry boxes, shift dirt from and reline existing raised beds, establish pathways and plant seedlings. The Time Bank also contributed a hearty luncheon for everyone.

The AHA Time Bank and St. Augustines Episcopal Church Garden will work for the Homer Community Food Pantry. Together, we are a great example of the Time Banks mission statement matching unmet needs with untapped resources. It was wonderful meeting everyone and participating in this community effort.

Marcia, we appreciated your plant donations. Thank you also to Titus, Eric, Greg, Joyce, Jim and Nell for all their efforts Saturday.

Cathy Knott and Deborah Lee Townsend
