The Castellana Foundation, Western Beef, Cactus Holdings and CEO Peter Castellana III, are proud to announce their support for the Growing Love Community Garden of Manorhaven, NY. The Mission of the Growing Love Community Garden of Manorhaven is to connect their diverse community to healthy food, nature and each other. This is obviously a natural fit for the Castellana Foundation, having given much in their charitable donations to healthy food and food scarcity causes. A representative from the Growing Love Community Garden had this to say about the donation:
“The season was one of phenomenal growth with 46 individual beds and 5 educational beds overflowing with flowers, vegetables and herbs. We have planted 6 native trees, built a beautiful pergola from fallen locust limbs and constructed a long bed solely for food donation to our local pantry. A lot has been accomplished in this year!
We are truly grateful for your help.
We ended this growing season on October 28th with a Harvest Festival and were granted a garden Blessing by the Bishop who was saying Mass across the street… very moving. ”
