Penfield Rotary's September service project was staining the table and benches at the 
Penfield Community Victory Garden. The morning was brisk but the lively atmosphere is keeping everyone warm!
Penfield Rotary was awarded a $2,000 grant to build a shelter and tables/benches at the Penfield Community Victory Garden through the Rotary Foundation.  For his Eagle Project, Ryan Hoyt, planned the purchase and installation of the pavilion, table and benches. The scouts from Troop 230 erected it last October.  Dolomite donated a cement truck and their labor to pour the concrete footers at the site.
These will truly benefit the entire Penfield community-- providing shelter and classroom space for community activities.

The Penfield Community Victory Garden is located on a 3.3 acre piece of town-owned land located at 1748 Five Mile Line Rd., near Rothfuss Park. The garden is divided into 7' x 16' or 7' x 32' plots that may be rented by Penfield residents. The rental fees are $40 and $70, respectively. Reservations may be made in person at the Penfield Recreation office, 1985 Baird Rd., Penfield. 

Penfield Community Victory Garden mission statement: The PCV Garden is designed and operated to provide Penfield residents with an opportunity to grow their own ORGANIC based vegetables, flowers, and herbs for their own consumption or for the needy. The garden also provides for the development of the Penfield community by working together to improve the garden, sharing knowledge and techniques of organic gardening and managing the garden through the PCV Garden volunteer committee. 

Volunteers are always needed for many aspects of the planning and oversight of the garden, as well as manual labor. No experience necessary! To volunteer, or for more information, please email, or call (585) 340-8651.
