It’s back to school time again! Our back to school drive was a huge success. Most of the supplies are already in their new homes waiting for school to start. If you are a client with children and missed out please ask this week and we can set you up with supplies.
Here is the September activity calendar. Many programs are starting up again, so definitely take a look.
Attention all gardeners! Would you like to support the Compass this season by growing an extra row of vegetables or donating extra produce? The Compass grows food in several plots in the Hillside Community Garden that supplement our food bank operation. We are looking to you to help increase the amount of nutritious, fresh produce that we can distribute to our clients.
Whether your vegetable garden is large or small, consider adding an additional row, bed, pot or plant. If you have extra fruit or vegetables, earmark them for donation to the Compass. The more Compass Growers we have the more fresh produce we can distribute.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
For the second year The Compass has a plot at Hillside Community Garden. Last year many of our volunteers and clients had the joy of tending the garden and watching it grow. The produce, including fresh herbs, tomatoes, and green beans, was a delightful addition to our market food bank.
Here are some photos from the launch today. Thank you @EcoSourceGreen for your support of the garden and the work you put into it making it the success it is.
If you have any extra garden produce this summer please think of The Compass! A bounty of produce is a great problem to have!
