This fun, novel contest has increased awareness of our garden sites. Did you know ICG started with 1 garden and this year, we now have six, fully functioning and beautiful garden sites from Lockport to West Seneca, serving over 150 families plus six local soup kitchens and food outlets with fresh herbs, flowers and vegetables?
Our next open invitation community event is Kids’ Pumpkin Day, Oct 20th, 10 am-Noon, when neighborhood kids can come down with an adult to pick out a free pumpkin to have carved to take home. We’ll even have free donuts and apple cider~ What a joyful day to watch their faces as they pick out and have their pumpkin carved to their delight! Please come and take in the joy that will be in the air~ We can also use extra hands to help!
