“It is official…The Bounty Garden has a home!”        

In two separate votes, the Joint Planning and Operations Committee unanimously supported the Garden’s community-service gardening program and the placement of the program in our beautiful Hap Magee Ranch Park.

We are delighted!

Sooner than anticipated, we will be able to “dig in” and harvest the wide variety of vegetables that our Food Bank needs to support its incredibly important, but overburdened, programs.

The development of a license agreement with the Park will begin shortly.  Following completion of the agreement, the Garden’s first phase will take place with the irrigation system and the raised beds being installed.  Our eager Life Scouts have already begun actively collecting materials, and it is our goal that by this Fall, the Garden’s first seedlings will be thriving in their new beds!

We will happily keep you posted of the progress…

Until then, we hope you are having a wonderful summer.

Heidi and Amelia
