Friends of CORA Garden

We are beginning our second year growing produce for CORA- a food pantry for low income families and individuals in Chatham County.  Thanks to the faithful volunteers, today every inch of the garden is filled with growing vegetables.  Thanks to a handful of volunteers we were able to donate over 800 pounds of fresh produce to the food pantry,  We have hopes of growing as much or more this year.
