RRVP Seasonal Garden
Our seasonal garden, which is located at 421 South Rockton Avenue offers fresh produce in season. Master Gardeners are on hand from 1:00pm-3:30pm to assist clients in the harvesting process. Many local gardeners bring their excess harvest to the Pantry. Some plant a row just for us.
