First Planting Day - April 25th

To me, the first planting day on May 2nd was more than a success, it was a milestone....a great story for 60 Minutes. The planting day began at 9:00, but some community memebers were so eager to begin planting, that they showed up early. We had a huge turnout - lots of community members representing churches, recreation centers or just interested residents (and their children!). Several Leadership Greenville Class 35 memebrs came out along with the Food and Nutrition, Facilites and Mission Services departments from St. Francis. People represented different backgrounds, ages, races - but were all there for a common purpose - to plant the Earth. The weather was beautiful, everyone was in a great mood and the garden is now full of herbs, flowers and vegetables. A poetic day if you ask me....
