HWC's Community Garden Plots are in!

Our raised beds have been constructed, dirt and compost delivered, and thanks to our wonderful volunteers, our beds have been planted!  Special thanks to Dave Miller of Miller's Plant Farm, who donated vegetable plants to our effort.  The community gardens are sponsored by York County 4-H/Penn State Cooperative Extension.  Healthy World Cafe's efforts are under the coordination of Robin Pflieger, Advisory Group and Food Subcommittee member.  Thanks to Robin and all of our volunteers.

There will be a ribbon cutting for the Community Garden at 234 S. Pershing Ave., York City, on Tuesday, June 14, at 11:00 a.m.  York City Mayor Kim Bracey will join us in celebration.  Please join us!

Our next Healthy World Cafe Advisory Meeting will be held on Monday, June 6, 6:30 p.m., Friends Meeting House, 135 S. Philadelphia St.  All are welcome to attend.

Thanks to Miller's Plant Farm!
