Lived across the street from Sacred Heart
She’d seen many people going in our doors. For her life was hard and her husband’s part-time job barely covered her bills each month.
Joined our organic garden initiative
She received a flyer about La Mesa Verde and came to our doors for the first time. “I’ve always grown tomatoes and berries, but wanted more.”
Her garden flourished
Debbie and a group of volunteers got to work, digging up dirt and planting seeds. Through hard work, her garden flourished.
Became a community leader
Debbie took what she learned and shared her knowledge. She spoke to others about the challenges of making ends meet.
