Center Parc Credit Union Sponsors Homestead Harvest Giveaway January 30

By: Carriage Trade Public Relations
SAVANNAH, Ga. - Jan. 27, 2021 - PRLog -- (GARDEN CITY, GA) The Garden City Homestead Association's community garden will share its third harvest with the community at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 30, in a program that will include food demonstrations and education sessions. This is one of eight community gardens Center Parc Credit Union has awarded funding within the past six months.

The Garden City public is invited to share in a winter vegetable harvest to be held at the garden, 4115 Second St. in Garden City. Representatives from the Garden City City Council are among those expected to attend.

Local families have been concerned about getting food on their tables in the past year, and have been reaching out to local organizations for help.

Further illustrating community need, since its launch in 2016, the YMCA's Fresh Express program has distributed just over 39,000 pounds of fresh food to an average of 200 people a month in Savannah. For more information, visit

The Garden City Homestead Association garden is one of eight community gardens throughout Chatham County to which Center Parc Credit Union donated approximately $17,500 in sponsorship dollars throughout 2020. Representatives of the non-profit financial institution will be on hand for Saturday's program. Center Parc also plans to launch its own community garden this year.

"Community gardens are becoming increasingly popular and can help communities increase their supply of fresh, healthy produce," said Donna Williams, community development liaison for Center Parc Credit Union.

In addition to increasing access to fresh food, community gardens beautify neighborhoods, encourage physical activity and educate the public about nutrition, Williams said.

For more information about supporting the garden as a volunteer or through donations, visit the Garden City Homestead Association Facebook page.
