West Hills Community Garden Picks 200 Lbs!
Look at the MANY pounds of food grown in the West Hills Community Garden. WHSA staff, students, Success program staff and students, staff from Seeds of Grace and many volunteers all contributed to a wonderful harvest that is already over 200 pounds. The food has all gone to feed West Hills families. What a wonderful project!
New Volunteer Gean Nelson utilized her Master Gardener skills for many hours at the WH Garden. For several weeks, she came in every morning for at least two hours to harvest the bumper crop of produce that the garden yielded. Her efforts are very appreciated by WH Staff and families. Without her help produce may have gone to waste. Mrs. Nelson has already suggested improvements for next year's garden.
