Inaugural Turkey Trot
Jim Elliot Garden
On November 13, 2017, the Lodi Rotary Club and the San Joaquin Master Gardeners cooperated to assist the Life skills Class at Jim Elliot High School plant a garden. Chef James Williams lead the group along with Bob Slayback, Rotarian & Master Gardener. Plants were donated by Bonnie Plants. Raised planters were built out of wood that was salvaged from portable buildings that were torn down.
Boxes were packed and delivered to Lodi Shut-Ins on Labor Day. The next shipment will be for Halloween. Melanie Toutai will be heading up this effort and providing ideas to us for things to be donated.
Bob, Chris and (the master builder) built, filled and delivered the completed rolling planter to Needham School. Thanks to Bob the master gardener and Chris the soil master and giver of soil the children will enjoy learning about gardening firsthand.
Funds have been collected for Jeni Elson's Ebeneezer Orphanage in Ethiopia. Approximately, $1600 went with Jeni in the form of clothes, shoes, and cash.
