LVG members were digging in the dirt on Saturday, April 12 at the Project Host Garden weeding, planting, and tilling the soil. Project Host is the first soup kitchen in the country to have a garden on site. And this is one garden that earns its keep. It has grown tons of produce for the hungry, and the culinary students have fresh produce to use to hone their skills. (The CC Pearce Culinary School teaches culinary and life skills to chronically unemployed and underemployed people in order to gain and sustain employment and to become positive roles model for their children, grandchildren and peers in the community.)
Check out these photos from the day & a say a special ‘thank you’ to all those who volunteered:
Afterward, the group refueled with lunch at Tupelo Honey, a ”soil to city” restaurant in downtown Greenville that has a partnership with Mill Village Farms, another community led, new urban farm model that provides fresh, locally-grown produce to our community.
Serve others together with your LVG friends! The next opportunity is the Blood Drive & Letters to Troops Campaign on Saturday, April 26th between 11am-3:30pm in front of Chuy’s on Woodruff Road. For more details, contact Tyler at firstname.lastname@example.org or check the Facebook event.
