Vegetable garden yields first crops

Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield invites the congregation, friends, neighbors and all others from the community with an interest in feeding the hungry to attend the special harvest event for its first-ever vegetable garden.

Help is needed Sunday, Aug. 26, 2012, after Sunday worship (approx. 11:00 a.m.) to pick the vegetables from the garden, planted this past spring by the children of Grace. The vegetables will go to the West Springfield Parish Cupboard to help feed those in need. All the “home framers” who have bounty to share to add to those grown by our children are also invited to attend.

Grace is also looking for help delivering the vegetables to the Parish Cupboard during the week of Aug. 27; availability before noon Mon.-Fri. Children are especially encouraged to help. For more information, contact Carol: 413-733-7345 or via email at
