MAY15: Help build the new Summer Street Giving Garden!

Come and join us for a Sunday afternoon garden-building get together at Summer St. Park (formerly known as Jaycee Park) in Grinnell. All ages and skill levels welcome!
What is a “Giving Garden?” It’s a garden planted and maintained by volunteers to provide free, healthy food to anyone who needs it. That might be a family with a limited income, or a passer-by in need of a quick snack! Most of the food is distributed by the MICA food pantry.
Last summer, Imagine Grinnell volunteers and friends started work on a natural playscale and neighborhood giving garden at Summer Street Park in Grinnell. There is a lot of work left to do! Come join us for good food, meet new friends and help feed your neighbors! Rain Date: Sun. May 22nd.
