The John Howard Society offers a community garden for those living in Vernon and area. People who like to get their hands dirty can come and work and in return receive free organic produce. There are several benefits to gardening besides getting free, high quality fruits and veggies. People can also make new friends and get exercise! Last year the garden grew so many vegtables, we donated them to various food security programs, which helps families that live on low incomes. If you want to donate alot or just a little of your time, the John Howard Society Community Garden may be the place for you!
