Summit Garden Club Needs Your Help!
The Summit Garden Club grew over 600 pounds of produce last year and donated it to the Johnston Partnership for people in need. This year we hope to grow even more! In the office there is a box for raising money for seeds, plants, and garden supplies. Help us help our community by donating anything you are willing to give! We are also accepting gently used garden supplies that you may no longer have a need for in your home. We will be collecting donations from Monday, March 21st to Friday, April 1st.
