This garden is at our Main Office and provides food for that pantry location. Our 13 garden beds are tended by community based garden coordinator, Melody Mason, with the help of other community members and volunteers.
Melody had previously helped manage a community garden in Chester, PA. She recently completed the Master Gardener program at Penn State Extension.
“I learned a lot from the LCS garden program and I believe the garden added a special touch to the services that the organization provides. The garden became a place where people felt comfortable and asked a lot of questions related to health, food and more. We are able to produce many pounds of food that adds to the healthy diets of clients. Last year we were blessed to have 90% of our seeds produce. I believe it was great people working together in a good space.”
