Many hands will help garden grow

The Martindell Peoples Garden is established and growing thanks to many in the community. A grant to establish the garden was provided by USDA-NIFA through the Homer Soil and Water Conservation District. Boy Scout Troop 555 did a fabulous job charcoaling the posts to protect them from rot, and Bay Crest Greenhouse donated many vegetable starts for the kids to plant. Thank you to the members of Homer United Methodist for supporting the project and helping to install the fence. And a big thanks to all the kids who are serving by tending the garden on Sundays. The produce will be harvested by the kids in the fall and distributed by the Homer Community Food Pantry which also has supported this project from the beginning.

Thanks for a group effort well done.
