Partnership with the LSI Refugee Community Services Program enters fourth year
Starting on June 9 and running through August 18, refugees from Bhutan will join with local volunteers to tend the Faith & Grace Garden. The refugees will be with us every Thursday morning from 9am – Noon. Our refugees are experienced gardeners who love this community time and have taught us much about their culture, and how to care for the soil.
