Plano Community Garden – 2018 Update
2017 was a good year for the Garden, well sort of. We started off on a bad note, finding out that we would have to buy our plants. The plant company decided not to supply us with plants and would not allow a local retail store to give us their distressed plants. Luckily we were able to raise a few funds and received a donation from a local garden center. The growing season was long and we were able to deliver 7,240 pounds of produce to the Kendall County Community Food Pantry this year. Also, we did raise enough money and with a generous donation from a local siding/roofing company were able to build our shed.
2018, we find ourselves raising money again. This time for plants and we are in need a fence at the garden. When one of the old metal sheds came down, we found it was anchored to the fence. The fence is old and is of miss matched panels. We would love for a local company to help us out by providing a new fence.
