Members of Boy Scout Troop #70 recently visited the Milford Garden Club’s Community Garden, and were amazed at the bounty of vegetables and flowers that needed to be harvested. Located next to the Milford Township Building, the garden yielded bags of produce, which were collected and delivered to the Ecumenical Food Pantry. In late spring, Home Depot employees took a day off to augment the soil and plant a variety of vegetables. And a generous grant from the Greater Pike Foundation (the Barbara Buchanan Award) was used to install a timed irrigation system, which has increased the harvest by nearly 50 percent.
