Thank you to the volunteers from Western Asset who stopped by
for the fourth year in a row to do some gardening!

Western Asset employees volunteer at Hathaway-Sycamores’ Family Resource Center.

The group of green-thumbed volunteers spent a recent Saturday replanting a soon-to-be-bountiful garden at our Family Resource Center. Western Asset employees helped create the Family Resource Center’s garden four years ago, and have been returning every spring since to keep it growing. Western Asset associates were joined by staff members of Hathaway-Sycamores, along with neighborhood kids and families who utilize the Highland Park Family Resource Center’s services.

Together, the group dug in and planted a cornucopia of herbs, fruits, and vegetables. Once harvest time arrives, produce from the garden will be distributed to area families in need. The garden’s fresh fruits and vegetables also will be used in Family Resource Center cooking classes.
