The St. James Caring Center has partnered with Gary Huffman, owner of Peace of Mind Lawn Care to relocate the Community Garden and raised beds to Sydney Street. On Saturday April 15th, this group of volunteers helped to move the raised beds to the new location.  The Caring Center was forced to look at other options for the Community Garden after determining the current location was the best site for a new Senior Center. Construction for the new 10,000 square foot facility will begin this summer.  After learning of the new building project, Gary Huffman contacted the Caring Center offering his land on Sydney Street and his time to manage the project.  According to Ramona Rinehart, executive director of the St. James Caring Center, Gary will be a valuable resource, as his years of experience will provide “hands on gardening” with participants. Community Gardens provide a means for affordable vegetables and fresh fruits while promoting physical activity.  Anyone interested in a raised bed or volunteering can contact the Caring Center at 265-2047.
