A DONATION of storage units will help out a gardening group that helps out the community.

Two storage containers have been donated to the Seventh-Day Adventist Church by Bandstra and they will be used to store gardening tools and equipment.

A garden plot is on the church’s six-acre property, of which one-half is for the church and one-half is a community garden worked on by a group called Seed Sowers.

The garden yielded 5,000 pounds of potatoes and produce last year, says Barb Tetz, coordinator of Seed Sowers.

Produce is given to several groups such as Terrace and District

Community Social Services and Paces, and Tetz

has contacted other groups to see if they could use any.

It’s all about community building, says Tetz.

“I love to do it because I meet so many neat people,” she says.

When you see people, who you’ve helped walk by in town, they will get a big smile on their faces when they see you, she says.

That’s when you know you’ve sowed seeds there, she says.

Last year, growing the carrots and beets were a struggle, but this year, the group got a tip to  plant parsley, which has a positive effect on the carrots, says Tetz.
