Follow along as we share information, updates and pictures from our NEW Multi-Generational Garden at the Saco Community Center!

This garden was created through the generosity of a grant by the Maine Community Foundation. These raised garden beds will provide our older residents the opportunity to garden along with our school aged children in summer camps at the Community center.  The Rotary Club of Saco Bay donated their time to plan and build the raised structures. The plan is for continued cross-generational programming throughout the summer on the benefits of incorporating fresh produce into a healthy diet.  In the fall, a farm to table dinner is planned with all gardening participants to enjoy together the fruits of the harvest.
