Plant a Row for the Hungry

Hello Gardeners!

Just an update to let you all know we've past the half way point on our goal to 100 lbs. We've donated 57 lbs of tomatoes, green beans, cukes, eggplant & squash.

Another note: the People's Resource Center's receiving area is not on Blackhawk. Turn right at Plaza, and it's the first driveway on the right. They usually have signs out. Any questions, give me a call 630-852-4480. Thanks to everyone who donated. I'll update at the meeting in Sept.
