"Letter from the President"
(April 2018)

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Happy Spring! When I think of spring I think of gardening. I start pulling out my empty garden containers, I go buy seeds and soil and I start some of the seeds indoors. How about you?

Many of you are aware of the amazing garden that we have been able to have over at the Vineyard Church. For several years, the Vineyard has hosted a garden that we benefit from. Last year, we had a woman who graciously volunteered to coordinate the garden. Suzanne gave up many, many hours to organize and maintain the garden. Well this year Suzanne is unavailable and we have struggled in the past to get consistent volunteers. We really need your help or we will not get the produce we have been so fortunate of to receive in the past. It has been wonderful to be able to share the healthy produce with our clients, some of which they had never tried before. We usually provide a 5 ingredient (or less) recipe to go along with some of our summer and fall harvest.

There are about 30 beds and we are looking for volunteers to plant/adopt a 4x8 raised bed. The vegetable choices would come from us, but let’s say you decide to be responsible for a bed of tomatoes. You would be responsible for cleaning out the bed, adding compost, adding the plants, watering, weeding and harvesting the plants of that item. Water would be supplied by the Vineyard. After tomato season is done, then so are you. In addition to this, we will be trying out some incentives with this approach such as getting a bed for your own gardening. Or planting a garden in the bed and you give us a couple of rows. We are open to suggestions. PLEASE contact me as soon as possible if you would be interested in volunteering at the garden. 585-336-9107 or iccdebbieevans@gmail.com

I hope this is something that will continue as our clients really look forward to the fresh produce we have been able to supply via this garden. This would be a great way for a school group, a group from church, one of our civic organizations in town or a family to “Help us Help others” in our community. All year long I receive calls from people who want to volunteer and get involved with ICC, well this is a great way to do that.

We have had a lot of donations so far this spring; churches for Lent, neighbors, Scouting for Food, etc; thank you so much for your generosity! I will be getting a list of our donors up on our facebook page shortly. (listed below in an INCOMPLETE list)

Fingers crossed for some nice, sunny, WARM weather; I am ready for it!

Debbie Evans; President and Executive Director
