Young’s Plant World recently donated several trays of vegetable plants, as well as vegetable seeds to the cause as part of the Salvation Army’s Growing Kindness campaign. The plants and seeds will be planted in a garden plot the Salvation Army is tending this summer, said Lieutenant Samuel Tim.

The food that is grown in the garden will be distributed in the fall through the food bank so that people who need support can have “fresh produce, not just canned goods,” he said.

The Growing Kindness campaign is about more than just the garden the Salvation Army is tending. It is also about inviting gardeners across the region to share some of what they grow, or to intentionally plant an extra row in the garden for the food bank and Grow Kindness throughout the community.
