Even though, as I write this, we still have snow on the ground. Spring will be here before you know it. There is no time like the present to get involved in planning our garden for this spring.
After the publicity from the destruction of our garden by the city, we received offers of support to rebuild. We picked up close to 50 garden boxes courtesy of Feed Illinois, and will be working with the Master Gardeners from the University of Illinois program.
If you love to garden, and would like to come and help us as we make our plans for this coming spring, please contact us at:
Donations to the Community House Juice-a-Thon were collected this weekend from the Boley Farms, a local organic garden tended by horticulturist Jack Myrna.
He donated more than 20 lbs of veggies to our cause of bringing healthy practices to our recovery house, and all those in our community wanting to experience a more healthy way of life.
Recovery is hard, and often we can get comfort from food. Learning new healthy habits is a challenge, but part of living our best life.
The Community House gives a huge thank you to Jack for his generous gift to our cause of a healthy body, healthy mind!
