GOMOC is partnered with the Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners and the Byron and Elba Presbyterian churches to begin a project to teach vegetable gardening and preservation. We hope to target our impoverished community to show them how to become more self sufficient by growing their own food, preserving it, and possibly having enough to sell or share with others.
If you have or know of property that can be used for a community garden, please contact Orleans County Cornell Cooperative Extention Master Gardeners.
Everyone is welcome. We invite any and all interested individuals who would like to participate. Contact our office at 585-589-9210 for more information or to join us in this endeavor.
