Happy Earth Day!

Today is a perfect day to kick off our Community Garden project for 2020! This year we are expanding to 3 gardens and we need your help. In partnership with the LBC in Mount Vernon and local Master Gardeners, we’re adding 12 raised bed gardens at the LBC. We’ll continue our traditional vegetable garden near the Lisbon Rehab Center and add a butterfly garden outside of the sunroom at that facility, for the residents to enjoy. 

So if you need to get out of your house, find a task to calm your anxieties, or just want to do a good deed for the community, this is for you! We’ll be adhering to all social distancing guidelines by scheduling volunteers at separate times or in family groups only. Volunteers are welcome to bring their own tools, or we will have cleaning supplies on hand to disinfect tools between uses. 

In the last two years we’ve raised 1500 pounds of vegetables for our food pantry clients and community members. With your help, we can continue to fight hunger and promote healthy eating here in Lisbon and Mount Vernon.
