On Saturday April 27th, Winchester Heights residents gathered at the Burris Children’s Memorial Park to plant agave, corn, tomatoes, lettuce and other vegetables. They planted seedlings in pots, beginning the community’s plans to start a community garden.
The agave plants were donated by Jane Williamson-Davenport, FNP-C, who works in the Chiricahua Mobile Clinic, providing health care services to the community. The initiative to start a community garden in Winchester Heights is funded by a Community Food Bank Punch Woods Endowment Grant.
