Triple Ripple Community Gardens at the Huss Project is starting its third season of growing organic produce for families in the Three Rivers community. During each of the past two summers, volunteers have grown over 1,000 pounds of produce that was donated to Keystone Place, Domestic and Sexual Abuse Services, and other families in need. This year’s goal is to grow one ton of vegetables!
In a recent interview with River Country Journal, Garden Coordinator Julianna Sauber said, “We want to get good, healthy food out to people that maybe don’t have access to it. We also would like to teach people how to grow their own food so that they can become self-sufficient.”
If you would like to learn more about growing good food, join us at the Huss Project on Thursday nights from 5 to 7pm. In June, we’ll add Monday nights from 5 to 7pm and Saturday mornings from 8 to 11am. Come on by!
For more information, please contact Julianna via e-mail or by phone at 248-722-9569.
