Janet in the weeds with the Girl Scouts!
If you enjoy the garden, please sign up for the Kroger Community Rewards Program! All monies go to maintain the garden. If you have joined the Kroger Reward Program then on each of your grocery receipts you will notice " 20016-20017 Kroger Community Rewards" "You are contributing to Association For Better Community Schools". Thank you, ladies of Norchester Garden Club for your support and work effort to keep the garden beautiful. ABCS (Association For Better Community Schools) is the original organization that saved Matzke Park from being a strip mall. 35 bags of mulch were purchased with the help of the Kroger Community Rewards Program.

The Norchester Garden Club has a yearly challenge project for it's membership. For the 2016 contest members were challenged to design one of Norchester's End Caps. Georgeine and Cathy's design won first place. Then the April floods came and the project was put on hold. This morning their design was put in place. Tommy, Chuck, and Carol helped as well.
