Volunteer organizers of the garden project to grow fresh vegetables for clients of the Nazareth Area Food Bank are anxiously awaiting some warm spring days to begin this year's garden. And once again, volunteers are being sought to help with the digging, planting and tending to the variety of vegetables we grow.
With thanks again to Essroc for the use of its property at South Main and Delaware Streets in Nazareth for the garden plot across from the Nazareth Area Food Bank, organizers began the first stages of this year's project on Saturday, April 13. Click on the 'Photos' tab to view some pictures of volunteers at work that day.
By the grace of God and all our hardworking volunteers and donors, we had a very successful growing season in 2012. We heartily thank last year’s volunteers and financial supporters, and credit the garden’s success to the generosity of many people in our Nazareth Area School District community and beyond.
We hope that plenty of volunteers will come out and join us during the 2013 growing season to help supply the Food Bank’s clients with fresh vegetables. We plan to enlarge the growing area this year by two more rows and therefore need more helpers on a weekly basis -- usually on Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings.
If you like to garden and help others, we invite you to join our efforts for another successful growing season. Please contact either Les or Nancy Little at 610-759-6414. We hope to see you at the garden on South Main Street, Nazareth.
