Intergenerational Community Garden

Sponsored by Island Harvest, Slow Food East End, and the Unitarian Universalist  Congregation of the South Fork, the intergenerational community garden is a collaborative initiative of The Butterfly Effect Project and Family Community Life Center. Our garden is designed to foster learning, relationships, mutual respect, community spirit and service among gardeners of all ages and abilities. Our harvest is donated to food pantries, Butterfly families, and others who need extra nutritional support. We are honored to help enrich our community, one seed at a time.

We are so incredibly grateful to Liz and Dan Keller for their hard labor in building the garden and realizing its vision.
