About ten years ago, Kingstonian Bernie Robinson donated a plot of land for a community garden. Shortly afterwards, Bernie spoke to The Rotary Club of Kingston looking for volunteers to help him manage the garden. Then something unanticipated happened.
Robinson joined the Club.
Over the years the club members have become more involved. Until now, Bernie had hired a coordinator to manage the volunteers who worked the garden, however, this year four members of the Kingston Rotary Club are doing the coordinating. They are Rotarians Elsabe F, Allan D, Matt H and chair of the group Mike Wilson. 
Weekly volunteers are needed after planting to weed, water, check for bug damage, and harvest the crops. 
With all the rain this spring, it wasn't until June 16th, that a team of Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Kingston got onto the land do some planting. Some of the plants and/or seeds planted are tomatoes, cabbage, peppers, beets, cucumbers, squash, carrots and sunflowers.

Planting Day: June 16, 2022

This year for the first time, food from the Robsinson Community Garden will first go to Easter Seal families in need of food security, after which it will be given to other agencies such a Lion's Heart and Food banks.
