The Community Table Garden is one of our GSL Outreach grantees. The mission is to increase fresh, healthy food access for our most vulnerable neighbors. There are opportunities for volunteers to dig, weed, water and cheer on plants and seedlings as they make their way from the earth. This garden is located in the heart of midtown on Madison in the lot where Anderton’s Restaurant used to be, right next to Huey’s. The CTG grows safe, healthy, organic produce and everything is donated to local food pantries and soup kitchens. Our own food pantry was happy to receive some of the harvest and give away fresh vegetables last season!
This past year, thanks to the support from GSL, the Community Table Garden was able to expand the growing area of the garden by about 40%! Five new raised beds were installed that allowed many more rows for planting. They grew tomatoes, herbs, and cut flowers in the new space. A sturdy trellis was added for tomatoes and beans, and will be used for many seasons to come. Also with the funds, a secure storage shed was built at the garden that can be locked and safely keep tools and equipment out of the elements. Many thanks to all of you that participated last year.
