Need Something To Do Saturday?

Posted By on Sat, Jun 11, 2011 at 7:00 AM

A seed of an idea was planted in the minds of Brandon and Kathrine Stankewsky when they decided that eating natural, organic food was important to them and their growing family. That seed, which sprouted from the realization that quality produce can be pretty spendy, grew into a cornucopia of good eats, good intent and good will.

The Stankewskys decided to start a community garden—not only to feed themselves, but to help others as well. A Seed Planted was sewn. The nonprofit organization runs the Hattie Howerton Memorial Garden, whose volunteers maintain the parcel of land from which the bounty is harvested and donated to local homeless shelters.

They are busy whipping the garden into shape and they could use some help. They have a dozen 100-foot long rows that need to be weeded and as many irrigation ditches that need to be dug. Volunteers can stop by the garden today at 2257 W. Targee St. in Boise between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. to lend a hand.
