Gary Community Partnership is excited to support our community in fighting the scarcity of produce in Gary Indiana. We are creating a community garden that will allow us to grow and harvest our own fresh vegetables and eventually fruits, that will be used to support local community members and markets!

We are looking for both people who have experience with gardens, and those looking to learn about gardening! There is no age limitation but anyone interested under the age of 18 must have a parental note authorizing their participation.

We are looking for retired seniors, in addition to the working class! For college students, this is an amazing opportunity to give back to the community and to differentiate yourself through philanthropic means! For those in Corporate America, nothing speaks louder to your character on a resume than volunteer experience! We would love to provide a quality reference in all cases in exchange for your support, making this a win-win for everyone!

-Cheers

Jeffrey Edwards
