Growing St. Mary's Garden

Recipient:

St. Mary's Garden Club

Amount:

$1,000

The St. Mary’s Garden is a small but productive garden next to St. Mary’s Hall.  To expand production, the Garden Club 1) increased garden space by growing vertically in a six-foot arbor, 2) increased the growing season through the construction of a cold frame, and 3) add a rain barrel to collect stormwater.  The Club also purchased Biobags to support their indoor compost collection.  The grant was used to support all these initiatives.
