Gardening program helps feed less fortunate

Creekside Garden Center is continuing their Grow and Give program to help feed less fortunate people of West Michigan. Starting Wednesday, July 11, and every Wednesday through Friday thereafter, bring in any extra garden produce to Creekside and they will transfer it to the West Michigan Food Bank. The food bank will then distribute it to families in the area.

Creekside Garden Center asks that to help insure freshness please do not pre-cool, pre-wash or trim produce. Please use brown paper bags and not plastic.

“We’re hoping to stir up the community and get others to think about giving back and help those in need,” Creekside owner Cathy Evanzo said. “We also hope that parents will teach their children to develop a sense of service to less fortunate and continue throughout their lives. We want young and old to get involved and pay it forward.”

Creekside is local and independently owned by Kim and Cathy Evanzo. It is a full-service garden center with unique plants, gifts, mulch and soil. Landscape and design services are also available. The center is located at 4015 Fruit Ridge Ave. NW, between Four Mile and Five Mile roads. For more information, please visit their website at
