Thanks to recent financial support from Newpark Resources, Cooper Standard, Mitch Album's SAY Charities, The CS Mott Foundation and others.  The volunteers from Christ Church have the newest garden at the "Teen Mom's Shelter" up and running and looking good as well!   Isla's Garden, a self-serve garden on Glendale in Highland Park, has doubled in size for 2018 and is well utilized by the community..
