News, Stories, and Field Notes from the Growing Center

Open Hours are back!

We are excited––and grateful––to announce that the Growing Center is able to resume some limited Open Hours! This spring and summer, we missed sharing the site with you, and are excited to welcome you back into the space to enjoy the greenery, fresh air, and local wildlife afforded by our quarter-acre urban garden park. For the rest of the summer and fall, Open Hours will be Tuesdays, from 5:00pm-7:00pm, Fridays, from 10am-12pm, and Saturdays, from 10:30am-12:30pm. Be sure to check our calendar, here, to confirm exact dates and times before planning to visit. In the interest of keeping our community safe and healthy, visits to the Growing Center will be a little different for the time being.

May Fundraising Update and Another Matching Gift Challenge for June!

The Friends of the Community Growing Center's Fundraising Committee is delighted to report that as of May 31, our fundraising totals for the month were a whopping $868––PLUS the $500 gift that the month's campaign was meant to match. Thank you to all of our generous friends and supporters who made contributions! And congratulations to Kristin Gilbert, our lucky winner of the Taza Chocolate Gift Box raffle prize. For the month of June, a wonderful donor and former Friends board member has come forward with yet another generous $500 gift. We at the Growing Center are striving once again to match this gift. A gift in any amount would go a long way––even if it's just $5, $10, or $15! Pleas
