Deirdre Holmes, project coordinator, posted this note of gratitude on Front Porch Forum: "As the gardening season comes to an end, I'd like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all who responded to my late spring request for help in the food garden at CCS. Throughout a very dry summer, generous community members each took on a week to water, weed and harvest. Starting in May, the garden has been able to make weekly donations of fresh organic produce to the Charlotte Food Shelf and/or the school meals program. Great thanks to Cecelia Wu, Jeanne Blackmore, Julia Parker-Dickerson, MaryEllen Hebert, Karen Tuning, Deborah Dodd Squires, Alice Trageser, Abby Foulk and members of the Charlotte, Shelburne, Hinesburg Rotary Club. I could never have done it without your kind help."  Well done to ALL.
Members of the CSH Rotary Club lending a hand at the Charlotte Central School garden. Chris Davis, Susan Grimes, Carrie Fenn, Linda Gilbert, and Susanne Davis have been weeding, watering, and picking vegetables all month long in the community garden behind the school. The very fresh produce is given to the summer school meals program and to the Charlotte Food Shelf.
Susan, Linda, and Carrie are submerged in a sea of sunflowers!
