Bring Your Surplus Garden Produce to the Food Bank

Monroe Food Bank Hours:
10:00 - 12:00 am on 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th Thursdays
5:00 - 7:00 pm on 3rd Thursdays

If you have surplus garden produce, or other contributions you'd like to make to the Monroe Food Bank, and you can't deliver them yourself, please bring them to the Alpine Park Wednesday evening or Thursday morning before 9:45. If we're not in the garden, just leave them on the picnic table under the picnic pavilion, in plastic bags. We'll make sure they get to the people who need them. (You can also take food donations directly to the Monroe Food Bank, in the garage behind the Methodist Church on Orchard St. This Thursday it's from 10:00 - 12:00 am) Llyn and Chris

Thanks to Dorothy and Evelyn for your help in weeding the perennial bed at the park. We've laid down clear plastic to "solarize" the weedy grasses. This will kill the grasses and their seeds so we can till them in and start fresh, planting perennial plants in the fall. (Let us know if you have plant "divides" you want to share with Alpine Park.)
