Peoria City Hall Plants Edible Garden

Posted on October 25, 2018 at 12:02 PM by Adam Rosen

The City of Peoria and the Peoria Diamond Club have collaborated to plant an edible garden on the city hall campus. The community center food bag program, benefiting local families in need, will receive the bounty of the vegetable harvests.

The garden consists of two plots located behind the council chambers. Volunteers planted broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, rainbow chard, brussel sprouts, red cabbage and kale. Diamond Club volunteers will care for the garden and harvest the vegetables, the first of which are due to mature in December. For more information on how to donate gardening supplies or become a Peoria Diamond Club volunteer, please contact Donna Fernandez, Program Manager, at 623-773-8710.
