Eastside Neighborhood Center

 
 
Uyen and Suzanne from Eastside Neighborhood Center arranged fresh harvest from the garden into a basket. It was full of chayote, corn, cucumbers, and the last of the tomatoes. They wrapped this beautiful basket up and raffled it off at $1 per ticket, raising $27 to buy soil and seeds for next season. We are proud of The Eastside Neighborhood Center for their good work!
