This Produce in the Park promises two exciting new things: banners and agua fresca! A thank you goes out to Nancy Matthews for ordering us two banners that will definitely help get our name out into the community. As for agua fresca, it's been hot outside the past few days and we have a lot of citrus. That seems like reason enough.
We had a great time at last weekend's Gospel Expo. Thanks again to Monrovia City Council Member Clarence Shaw for inviting us to participate. Heather and some willing volunteers were able to harvest several local trees before the event, allowing us to pass out more than 6 bags of tangelos, tangerines, oranges, and lemons. Our booth even got a shout out from the young hip hoppers rapping about the benefits of eating 5-7 servings of fruits and veggies a day.
Bring what you have – take what you want. That’s what we do if you’re just joining us here. If what you have is time, we welcome help for harvesting trees or setting up our monthly event. Join our team of volunteers by sending an e-mail to Produceinthepark@gmail.com or talk
to Greg on Saturday.
Please note, the Foothill quarantine is still in effect for a part of Monrovia. For more information, see this post.
