Parish Garden Clean-up Day

Another growing season has ended in our parish vegetable garden to feed the hungry


Once again, the gardeners provided herbs and vegetables for food insecure households in the area who depend on our food pantry each month. They continued to donate surplus produce to Catholic Charities in Des Plaines.

The parish garden was established in 2011 as part of our parish's  centennial celebration. It continues to thrive today. Mike Polley, garden coordinator extraordinaire, and his dedicated and knowledgeable team of gardeners — Dr. Carol Graham, Greg Fontana, Al and Pat Jasinowski, Nancy Cottrell, and Mike Widmaier — worked hard behind the scenes, spending countless hours in the garden.

Thanks to all the parishioners who adopted boxes last spring and made their gardens grow. Thank you for your strong commitment. We look forward to seeing you again in the parish garden in the spring of 2023!
