Nelson United Church planters help make a difference
A new Nelson United Church garden was constructed earlier this year to benefit the Nelson Food Cupboard at the church. (L-R) Lois Berg (church administrator), Ann Alma (gardener) and Anna Kirkpatrick (administrator of the Nelson Food Cupboard) get to work on maintaining the garden. Earlier this week the Kootenay Co-Op donated one per cent of its revenue as part of its monthly Community Donation Day to help fund the building of the planter. Nelson Home Hardware were also important partners as contributors of the paving stones. The City of Nelson provided the soil, and youth from Skills Link assisted Bob Steed in constructing the large planter.
