Sam Westby presents the new United Grove Community Garden Shed to Craig Ficenec, Garden Coordinator. Sam completed the shed in July 2013 with help from fellow scouts and community members. This construction of the shed will serve as his Eagle Scout Project. The United Grove Community Garden is a community outreach project for The United Way of Jefferson and North Walworth Counties. The garden has over 40 plots that are offered to community members at a nominal rate.
A constant reminder that when we as individuals think outside ourselves, we have the power to facilitate change. When we think of others’ lives as linked to our own, our compassion grows. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. We build the strength of our neighborhoods. We bolster the health of our communities. And we change the lives of those who walk by us every day.
