Lots of green


Senator William Walaska (third from left) recently visited the members and staff of Hillsgrove House, a clubhouse model of service for adults with mental illnesses, as they prepared for harvesting the final crops of the year from the most plentiful garden the club has ever produced. Thanks to the green – and organic – thumb of club member Bob Walker (second from left), the garden provided delicious and nutritious vegetables for lunch at the club all summer long, as well as into the fall. Hillsgrove House thanked the senator for sponsoring a $500 legislative grant for the club, which was used to purchase a garden shed to store all the tools needed to expand upon the garden next year.
