Whole Foods donates to community garden

The Armstrong Court Community organic garden is getting some assistance from one of the busiest grocery stores in Greenwich.

For all of June and July, the Whole Foods Market on West Putnam Avenue will be donating the proceeds of its Small Change Program to the garden. That means customers who come in with their shopping bags from home will have the option of donating the 10 cents savings per bag to the community garden effort. People will also have the option of making smaller donations, but the ten cent donations can add up quickly and garden organizers say they will be “meaningful.”

Patty Sechi, garden director, said that it was important for people to know about this opportunity.

“As you know, Whole Foods Market Greenwich runs a very busy shop and sometimes cashiers don’t have time to inform every shopper about the program, so, if you wish to participate, don’t forget to remind your cashier every time you shop,” Ms. Sechi said. “As for the garden, it has never been so abundant. Our new raised beds, filled with amazing certified organic composted soil, have really done the trick.”

The program will be in effect throughout all of June and July at the Whole Foods in Greenwich.
