Gardeners grateful for sponsors

To the editor:

With all the difficult news we read each day it’s nice to share some good news.

The Saco Community Garden began in 2009 and continues to thrive with the commitment of gardeners, volunteers, Saco Parks & Recreation Department and local sponsors – a true community effort.

This year we gardeners are especially grateful for the support to our capital improvement campaign from local business and organizational sponsors: Precision Screw Machine Products, Inc., York County Federal Credit Union, Biddeford-Saco Rotary Club, Saco Valley Credit Union,

Patriot Subaru, Peoples Choice Credit Union, Saco and Biddeford-Savings Institution and Rotary Club of Saco Bay all contributed generously. Thanks to these sponsors we will improve the community garden with new fencing, worktable, roofed porch and an accessible raised-bed garden. With these improvements we expand our ability to serve local gardeners with affordable spots to grow healthy food and flowers and promote a green and sustainable Saco.

Please join us in thanking these local sponsors for their contributions. And too, we invite you to view the community garden on King Street in Saco to see these improvements as they progress. Peg Mills Saco Community Garden
