LEI helps local community gardening program

LEI recently received results from our 2012 participation in Grand Haven’s Community Gardening Program.  A snapshot is provided below.   

47 – the number of gardening plots LEI supplied water for

28 – the number of families that used these plots, 13% of whom qualified as low income households

940 – the pounds of fresh produce generated from the gardening plots 

We are looking forward to continuing our support of this program in 2013.
