After a well attended successful event at the Hope Harvest Garden, Healthy Community Coalition staff and master gardeners will be offering additional events featuring gardening tips and hands-on demonstrations on Tuesday, July 14, at the Food City in Livermore Falls from 10 a.m-1:30 p.m. and the Livermore Falls Food Bank from 2-4 p.m.; on Thursday, July 16 at the Eustis/Stratton Food Bank from 10 a.m.-noon and at Fotter’s Market in Stratton from noon-3 p.m. Participants will be able to take home their own container garden. All plants and supplies are free, while supplies last.

Container gardening is a fun and easy way to enjoy fresh vegetables regardless of whether one has limited space in their yard.  Container gardens grow well on sunny steps and entryways and are fun way for individuals and children to learn about growing their own fresh fruits and vegetables.

In addition, Mobile Health Unit staff will be offering free health screenings, education and information.
