This picture is of SAC members Karen Schudson and Gloria Brown at Verde Valley Growers purchasing plants for the Rotary Club’s Community Garden. These vegetable and perennial flower plants are part of the Social Action Committee’s support of the garden that supplies space for community members to create their own gardens; the Rotary Clubs planters provide food to the area programs that feed the hungry.
