Classes have been held to teach the self-advocates how to prepare the vegetables for meals. Community members are welcome to select a plot for a donation. Last summer AbilityPoint’s Self Advocates donated hundreds of pounds of produce from the community garden to local food banks and senior centers.
In the fall when you clean up your lawns, think about AbilityPoint’s community garden as a place to donate your leaves. They will be used for compost.
There are always projects being worked on for the garden, building raised beds, moving drip lines, assembling structures, etc. Contact AbilityPoint about volunteering to help out, 943-1191.
All participants need to set up an account in Camp InTouch and complete all necessary paperwork before they can attend. Anyone needing assistance can contact our program staff at 943-1191. If you’d like to apply to register for activities, click here.

Help Support Our Garden!
Thank you to all who voted for our community garden in the national competition with Seeds for Change. Unfortunately, we did not beat out over 400 entries to win one of their grants. Donations are still necessary to help us continue to maintain and expand this amazing garden. Not only does the community garden provide great educational and social opportunities for our youth and adults, but the resulting harvests also benefit several food banks in our community. You can have a “share” in the garden by simply clicking here to make a donation. Thank you for your support!
