Sylvia Spencer, Manager, Grand Garden and Habitat for Humanity Community Gardens. October 18th, 2016.

Way back in March, we got to know Dell DeChant and Travis Morehead, who were then working hard to promote urban agriculture, and encourage people to grow their own food…Those projects now continue under the direction of our guest, today, Sylvia Spencer.

GRAND GARDEN FACEBOOK PAGE

MANY people in our community pointed me their way, to discuss urban agriculture, and the positive effect of community garden on the greater community.  At BOTH of those discussions, working hard behind the scenes, was…Sylvia Spencer.  With Dell named a USF Department Head, and Travis focused on (and moving TO) his new farm in Brooksville, Sylvia has stepped up to become the manager of the Grand Garden…She has ALSO been named to manager of the Kinship Farm Community Garden at Habitat for Humanity…And that farm re-opens this week as the Habitat for Humanity Community Garden…Here is a flyer about that event, happening this weekend:

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY NEW PORT RICHEY

We want to encourage all of our So Local Pasco listeners to pitch in and participate in community garden projects, here in West Pasco County.  It’s good for the environment, it reduces our “footprint”, uses less fuel and electricity to get the food to market, teaches critical life skills, and increases our self sufficiency.

A quick reminder that our friends in the Bayou Business Association are holding a “Trunk or Treat” Event at the Port Richey Walmart on Halloween, Monday, October 31st, at 5:30pm…It’s a well lit, central place to take kids for a safe Trick or Treat Experience.
