The McKinley Giving Garden is a partnership of many--The McKinley Foundation, McKinley Presbyterian Church, Presby Residence Hall, Faith in Place, the UI Extension...the list keeps growing. And so does our garden! How does this garden grow? With lots of love and labor from our friends and neighbors, and of course the wonders of nature.
We are growing produce for the clients of the Garden Hills Food Pantry and others in the community who have limited access to fresh produce.
Throughout the summer months, we meet in the garden on Monday evenings beginning at 5:30pm. We work until the work is done or until the sun goes down. Whichever comes first. We have space to be appropriately distanced from one another. We would love your help.
No gardening experience is necessary. Just a willingness to work outside for an hour or two. Each week we will have a volunteer captain on hand who will be able to provide instruction for each task that's needed that day. This is a great way to grow your own gardening skills while supporting a great cause. Please bring your own work gloves and a face mask.
