We will host the annual Blessing of the Soil event on Saturday, May 6th at Noon. The theme is “From Seed to Supper” and attendees will learn how Catholic Charities is able to provide so much fresh produce to those in need as well as detailing the nutritional significance of eating freshly grown vegetables.
CCCSR has hosted this community event since 2011 after creating a large garden on the side lawn of their location in Haverstraw where staff and volunteers oversee the growing of fresh vegetables for families and individuals who access the food pantry. It is also home to one of the only greenhouses on the site of a food pantry in the northeast.
Good Samaritan Hospital is the Premier Sponsor for the event. Our other sponsors include Kathy Kearns as a Garden Tool Sponsor and “In loving memory to brothers Gene, Jack & Dan, Love always, Maureen”. We thank you all for your support.
