Today, January 20, 2011, our community garden was honored by the Hillsborough Board of County Commissioners! The accommodation recognized the over 10 years of growing fresh food for the community. Check out the official presentation video below.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, September 27th & 28th over 200 volunteers from local Lowes stores along with groups from the Home Builders Institute and La Unidad Latina, will spend two days working on rehabilitating the homes of four deserving homeowners. In addition, Lowes, Lowes Charitable and Educational Foundation and Carter's Kids Foundation have joined forces with Rebuilding Together Tampa Bay, Hillsborough County Affordable Housing Department and Hillsborough County Parks and Recreation Department to erect a new playground set at Simmons Bowers Park in the heart of Progress Village. We are excited to have Carter Oosterhouse of HGTV fame join us to assist in the build and do the ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, September 28th at 1PM.
