While I was at Saturday’s “Touch-A-Truck” event at the Avon Township Center, I walked back to see how this years crop was doing at what is officially called the Avon Community Garden and Food Pantry Production Farm. To my surprise I saw a field full of vegetables and was told by Avon Township Supervisor Sam Yingling that they had already taken over 1,000 pounds of fresh vegetables into the food pantry from the community garden. Avon Township Community Foundation President, Wendy Warden, had recently posted on Facebook that even with the drought they were able to get a second planting in this year. Kudos to everyone who helped out with the planting, weeding, and nurturing this year, often carrying buckets of water during the dry spell. Wendy recently had the honor of speaking to a large group on how to go about and have a successful community garden. As you can see from the few photos below, Wendy knows her stuff!
