Hall High School, West Hartford, Plants ICSHC Community Garden

On Saturday, May 31st, more than 20 Hall High School (West Hartford) students arrived bright and early for a day of planting for Immaculate’s Community Garden. Three students took the lead on the project, Matt, Nate and Tim, and worked with Knox to get a number of items donated, as well as with Immaculate staff, Mrs. Elizabeth Devine and Laurel Hoskins to make sure everything was lined-up for one big planting day! On behalf of our clients, we are indebted to you for your hard work and dedication to see that this project was completed. We can’t wait to watch this garden grow and flourish, and be able to use the vegetables and herbs in meals for the Shelter clients.
