SoTre Properties developed the garden as a means to engage the community in a gardening project. Since today’s active residents usually do not have time to garden each week, the garden offers them the opportunity.
Once the pumpkins are fully grown and harvested, SoTre Properties will be organizing an event to benefit St. Michael's Food Pantry on Scranton Road. Stay tuned for more details.
St. Michael's serves those in need primarily from the 44109 and 44113 zip codes. The funds raised from the event will go toward purchasing food and other paper products like the brown shopping bags used to distribute food.
