Granite City Community Garden Seeking Volunteers

The Granite City Community Garden at the 2nd Baptist Church is now a Growing Illinois Food Access Allocation (GIFAA) Garden. 

The GIFAA project provides funding to grow and provide food to the Community Care Center Food Pantry.  Through a partnership with University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners and SNAP-Ed programs and support from the Granite City Sustainability Plan, they will increase local food to the community.

Volunteers have been planting, weeding and soon will be harvesting produce for delivery to the pantry. If you enjoy gardening and would like to be a part of this project contact Eadie Schillinger at eadien@charter.net.
