Eliot residents, the community, along with the support of a community organization, and members of St. Philip the Deacon Church have teamed up to grow food at the church, located at 120 NE Knott Street. Plans are underway for diversified community participation with gardening plots for African Americans, church members, houseless, disabled, veterans, community, and youth. The gardening members are asking the community and Eliot neighbors to donate gardening materials and supplies. They are also inviting folks to volunteer any of their time to building garden beds, helping with the garden set up, and gardening maintenance for this activity project. Let’s pitch in and feed the community! For more information contact the coordinator, Shireen Hasan: firstname.lastname@example.org.
