Help given

Fifteen volunteers from East Stroudsburg University came to the Garden of Giving in McMichaels as part of the annual United Way's Day of Caring. They did various jobs and projects.

On Oct. 19 there will be both garlic planting and tours of the farm. Everyone is welcome to come see the garden and/or help plant the garlic to be harvested next year.

The Garden of Giving is always in need of volunteers to help in the office, serve on the board, and help in the garden, including team leaders, as well as donations of supplies and funding to purchase what is needed for the garden and chickens. The Garden of Giving is an excellent opportunity for youth and scouting groups to learn about gardening, science, health, nutrition, and many other valuable life skills and lessons on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis.
