Cornerstone Mission Apartments

It was a chilly day on May 6, 2011 when our EcoFront volunteers spent a Friday afternoon shoveling dirt and compost.

One of the community projects our EcoFront team did this spring was create two garden boxes for the Cornerstone Mission Apartments. The apartments are transitional housing that is part of the Cornerstone Rescue Mission. The purpose is to  give those that live in the apartments experience is growing a garden and the responsibility of watering and weeding. The rewards are they then get to eat the produce thus saving money on some of their food and they get to feel a sense of accomplishment in watching the plants grow.

The reason for the project is to help people help themselves.
