South Lake Hospital Community Garden Seeks Gardeners for Fall Planting

CLERMONT, Fla. (September 20, 2017) - The South Lake Hospital Foundation is looking for gardeners to participate in the Fall planting of the hospital’s organic community garden, scheduled for Thursday, October 5 at 5:00 p.m. on the hospital campus. During the fall season gardeners are encouraged to plant beets, cabbage, cauliflower, greens, kale, lettuce, spinach and tomatoes.
The South Lake Hospital Community Garden was created as a sustainable community garden where members of the community can come together to grow and harvest nutritious foods. The garden is organic, and no pesticides or harmful chemicals may be used. Garden boxes for hobby gardeners begin at $25 for a 4’ x 4’ box for the year. Sponsors or gardeners may choose to tend the garden themselves or donate it to a local youth organization. All contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law and proceeds will benefit site development and operations of the garden, as well as education workshops and seminars for gardeners.
For more information about sponsorships, to reserve a garden box for planting or to donate to the South Lake Hospital Foundation, contact Sylvia Pane at (352) 394-4071, ext. 4406 or [email protected].
