This week, we were working on innovative gardening techniques for clients. Additionally, we continued identifying farmers markets that accept Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program. Ultimately, we’ll have an extensive directory to include with our mapping project. And, our work always includes keeping abreast of housing and homeless policy. The friends we follow today have all helped us achieve these goals this week (and provided a happy reminder of why we garden).
See you next week.
