The Jefferson Street Garden recently added a 36" inch high bed for one prime reason - to provide potential gardeners, who have challenges, the opportunities to stand at the bed and enjoy tending the plants. Pam Stevens says, "All are welcome. This is your garden, your community!" Volunteer Michael Golliver used his spare time and skills to construct the beds with donated lumber from local businesses. Benefits from our garden include:

  • Meet new friends and chat with old friends, share your knowledge and ideas!
  • Enjoy fresh produce and help grow food for the MAP pantry.
  • New gardeners are welcome, no experience necessary.

We are also seeking donations of seeds from the Seed Saver's Exchange, High Mowing Seeds and Renee's Garden. To learn more on connecting with the garden or donating, call MAP at 231-733-9672.

Mission for Area People (MAP) has been busy delivering food pantry supplies to individuals that are isolated due to COVID-19. Diana Wright-Stubbs, Executive Director of MAP, said that demand has doubled for food and hygiene items since the outbreak began. Deliveries aren't a normal service of MAP's pantry, but in these times, we are taking care of our neighbors. To volunteer or arrange a drop-off, please call our office at 231-733-9672 Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays.
