In partnership with SE Linn Community Center, our local Food Bank Heroes, we are encouraging all to consider getting involved with the Community Garden project for 2020!

This year they are expanding to 3 gardens and need your help. In partnership with the LBC in Mount Vernon and local Master Gardeners, they are adding 12 raised bed gardens at the LBC. They will also continue a traditional vegetable garden near the Lisbon Rehab Center and add a butterfly garden outside of the sunroom at that facility, for the residents to enjoy. 

So if you need to get out of your house, find a task to calm your anxieties, or just want to do a good deed for the community, this is for you! We’ll be adhering to all social distancing guidelines by scheduling volunteers at separate times or in family groups only. Volunteers are welcome to bring their own tools, or we will have cleaning supplies on hand to disinfect tools between uses. 

In the last two years our community has raised 1500 pounds of vegetables for food pantry clients and community members. With your help, we can continue to fight hunger and promote healthy eating here in Lisbon and Mount Vernon. Please click on the link below if you are interested in volunteering. Thank you!
