Evening Club Serves at AGAPE Garden

One of the goals of the Rotary Club of Ankeny's satellite, evening club is to complete a at least one service project each month.  In August, they participated in the preparation of "Meals from the Heartland".   On September 5th they helped harvest peppers and raspberries and pull weeds at AGAPE Garden in Ankeny.   They also got to see the tractor and loader the club helped purchase earlier this year in action. 
AGAPE Garden is located on the grounds of Faith Chapel Methodist Church in Ankeny and is the church's ministry to provide fresh produce for area feeding ministries. From spring planting through fall harvesting all work is completed by volunteers.  Last year, 23,750 pounds of produce was raised and donated to area agencies.  So far in 2017, 14,000 have been harvested.  This puts AGAPE Garden over 110,000 pounds in the last 8 years.
