Did you know we have a wonderful Community Garden behind our Parish Center?

Ascension Community Gardeners gather to plan in January, repair raised beds in March, plant seeds in April and May and harvest on Tuesdays all summer and early autumn. Produce is given to the St Martin de Porres Food Pantry. New gardeners are always welcome and no experience is necessary. This is a fun activity for families. Contact John Owens at owens708@comcast.net or 708 846-1827 for more information.
