Sunday, September 16 – Giving Sunday

Once a month, we encourage members to bring food items for donation to the Scarborough Food Pantry.


Be sure to look over the beautiful garden that is feeding our neighbors! Last week we harvested over 33 pounds of produce!

We have also planted some lettuce, kale, Swiss chard and beets for a great fall crop.

Weeders welcome!  If you have free time and would like to weed, we would be happy to have help.

(Bring bug spray and wear long sleeves and pants, though!)

Our Green Power sign-up sheet is looking a little lean.  Just as a reminder, this is an opportunity for folks to sign up to “Adopt a Month” in which to donate the $36 that is the extra we pay on our electricity bill, to support an increased portion of electricity being generated by Maine-based renewable sources. Please consider signing up for one of the remaining months, and thank you in advance for your generosity!
