Members in the community of Hartford are coming together to work as well as reap the benefits of a community garden.
Hartford resident Lillian Marie Pearson took her two children to the community garden, which is located at the corner of McCloud and Hazel.
The family spent two hours working and picking up rocks. “I want to teach my kids about volunteering and being a part of a community,” Pearson said. “What better age to start than three and six. Since they are both boys who love outside, the community garden was the perfect opportunity.”
Pearson added, “I hope to have the boys help distribute the food as well so we can get to know our neighbors a little bit more.”
Volunteers initiated the garden, have given their time, equipment and seeds. Anyone who is interested in helping is encouraged to stop by and be a part of this community project.
