services: Chris & Heather Bowes and Steve & Kat Hall for donating
lumber; Kenny Brown for his loader to fill raised beds; K&K
Landscape Supplies for garden soil; Pleasant View Gardens for
I can’t imagine anybody being disappointed regarding their
donations! The Scouts are harvesting the gardens twice a week now
and giving harvest to Epsom Food Pantry. YOU GO GIRLS!
