RSVP Volunteers Hard at Work:  Special thanks to volunteers Eddie Wilkerson and Bill Kocher who have been hard at work picking and distributing vegetables to local seniors throughout the Brooke County Senior Center, Dalessio Manor and seniors in the local neighborhood. 

There have been  an estimated 50 lbs. of green beans, 80 zucchini, and 100 cucumbers, plus tomatoes, eggplants, sweet basil and radishes that have been distributed or picked in the community garden by RSVP volunteers.  We are expecting at least 16 watermelons and have at least 11 pumpkins starting to develop from the garden. 

RSVP volunteers are starting to plan for 2013 garden.  We are still in need of rich top soil (rock free).  Special Thanks to Carl Martino for offering your next door lot located across the street from the current community garden for an additional community garden next year.  Eddie has envisioned a cornfield with plans to till this fall to get ready for 2013 planting. RSVP NEEDS VOLUNTEERS TO HELP!

He has since served 330 hours in 2011 to at least three neighbors in areas such as gardening and food errands and he has now been very instrumental in starting and currently working at least 179 hours at the Follansbee Community Garden.
