Nourishing Huron County Community Garden
The Huron County CHC Coalition is pleased to announce the planning and creation of the Nourishing Huron County Community Garden this year. The community garden will be located at Huron County Public Health, 28 Executive Drive in Norwalk. The garden will be used to teach the community about gardening, healthy living and promotion of healthy eating. All raised produce (herbs, vegetables, and fruit) will be harvested yearly throughout the growing season and donated to local food banks/pantries for Huron County resident consumption to help “make the healthy choice, the easy choice”.
The construction phase for the community garden is currently scheduled to take place in late spring 2020. Stay tuned.
