The Avon Township Food Garden, officially known as the Community Garden and Food Pantry Production Farm, keeps showing improvements with each and every visit. Since the Community area was planted, many additional plots have been planted as you can see from the slide show below. Besides the older white picnic table that was available, it looks like someone has treated the ‘farm” to a brand new shiny one to use.
Several plots remain available and have already been staked out so don’t delay if you are thinking of leasing one for the season. Rates are $35 per season or only $20 if you donate your excess harvest to the food pantry. Several local residents have rented plots and plan to donate their entire harvest to the pantry. This might be something that you would like to do as well, along with getting some sun, exercise, and meeting new friends with similar gardening interest.
If you would like to reserve a plot or volunteer please call Wendy Warden at 847-401-1135
