Microfarm produce

Fresh vegetables are the goal of the garden project.

MANSFIELD -- Volunteers are needed to get the Liberty Park Garden ready to produce fresh vegetables to help feed the community.

Progress has been slowed by rains and cooler temperatures in the early part of May and there is quite a lot of planting to be completed during June. The garden should provide bountiful harvest throughout the summer.

The project will help meet the needs for fresh produce through the East Side's Catholic Charities Food Pantry.

Work dates are June 3, June 5, June 12, June 14, June 21, June 24 and June 28. Times are 6 to 8 p.m.

For more information contact the Rev. Stanley Wertz, provisional deacon the the East Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church at 419-378-2503 or stanley.wertz@neo.rr.com.
