Gardeners Wanted

The West Suburban Community Pantry is partnering with the Bolingbrook Park District’s Garden Club and Woodridge Park District’s Garden Club to help maintain community gardens with all yields coming to the WSCP for client distribution.

Did you know Gardening is good for your health?

Gardening is a great way to use all the muscles in your body. You can get a workout digging holes, walking back and forth to get water, raking to maintain the garden, etc. Another benefit is you are out in the fresh air (please remember sunscreen). You can do something good for your body, mind and community all at the same time. Ask your friends to join you!

The date to start the Bolingbrook and Woodridge gardens has not been determined yet. If you are interested, please contact Denice Kraft: dkraft@wscpantry.org or 630-948-8135.
