Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
JULY DAYS AT HOLY NAME OF MARY'S COMMUNITY GARDEN, 2015 - Tucked
away on a plot generously donated by a Croton resident is a most
remarkable garden: The Holy Name of Mary Community Garden. Click on the photos below. The
church’s volunteers—led by Hallie Flanagan Wolfe—exemplify the
highest ideals associated with true community gardens: nearly all the produce is donated to meet local needs.
And they've been doing it for years! In 2014 alone, literally hundreds
and hundreds of pounds of produce went to food banks and related
initiatives.That's our definition of public service.
It's been a pleasure to photograph this garden year after year--and to write about its core mission. The volunteers are to be commended for all their hard work. Stay tuned for their annual round-up in Autumn.
