Hello. I (Nathan) am at Dolce Vita/Kish Health System Garden. I just need 2-3 people to help me pick strawberries and peas. I’m going to pick for just over an hour, or until rain. No pressure. This is a short notice opportunity. I’m going to pick either way. If you feel like helping, you can take some home. The majority will be donated. Just 2-3 people at the most. Thank you.

Join the Totes of Hope Program! DCCG and NB&T are partnering to provide more healthy vegetables to neighbors in need this summer. Every week NB&T is sponsoring a tote bag of fresh vegetables grown by DCCG for 14 County food pantries. Also for every new checking or savings account opened at a NB&T branch between now and the end of October, NB&T will donate $5 to DCCG to help continue and support the access to fresh vegetables for all. Please spread the word, and as always, thank you for being part of the solution, if we all work together no one needs to experience food insecurity! Thank You!

We had a great time sharing our Fresh Totes of Hope for the 2015 Ladies Night Out in downtown Sycamore on Thursday! Thank you to everyone who donated to breast cancer research, and we hope those veggie scrubbers and seeds from DeKalb County Community Gardens come in handy this year!

Ron Cress has led the prairie restoration and Gene Heinsohn is leading the building effort. DCCG has been planting several 1,000s of feet of garden. Tomorrow Heather Edwards will lead the planting of mums to prepare for fall mum sales. There are many opportunities to get involved and volunteer. Every Tuesday morning Ron will lead the work for restoration of the 10 acre savannah prairie, starting this weekendcSteve Miller will be leading the work of building a chicken tractor and house. There is something to do every day at Walnut Grove, come out and be part of building this new opportunity for people with special needs. It is by working together that we make the biggest difference!
