An Evening in the Garden
by Beonca, AmeriCorps VISTA Member
With funding from the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, the event was anchored by a barbeque cook-out and an arts and crafts section for the kids. To get everyone excited for fall, the children were able to decorate tiny pumpkins, which were a hit!
The event encouraged residents to stop by, and several expressed interest in starting their own plots in the garden. The evening was a great way for our VISTAs to learn more about the neighborhood and to build relationships with neighbors. We're excited to see what new projects will come!
