Memorial Garden Volunteer Kick-Off Event

With great sadness, we must report the passing of John Paul Endicott. This past year, as a Temple University Horticulture student, he developed and carried out the idea of a plot in our community garden, whose harvest of tomatoes, beans, potatoes and greens is donated entirely to families in need. John Paul was also the original creator of this blog.

John Paul’s passing was much too soon. But his connection to plants and people continues. In his memory and honor, the Endicott & Ryan families have created a memorial fund which will support a much larger donation garden to support his original vision.

You are invited to to the official Kick-Off Garden Work Day event to help begin the process of setting up and maintaining John Paul's Memorial Garden. We are seeking motivated friends, family, students, teachers, and interested volunteers to come help out this Saturday.
