Garden

2015 a Community Garden was added to the Montgomery Park as part of the Summer Alive Program.
Four raised beds were built by volunteers, and  organic soil was donated by Becky Sangledolce (Revitalize Montgomery, Riverside Campground). The children planted vegetables, herbs and flowers, donated by Lu Ann Potter and Tina Tickle. The children made scarecrows and placed them in the garden. Scarecrow items were donated by Nay Nays Thrift Store in Muncy, and Fry Brothers Farm in Muncy. The garden was mowed by employees of Riverside Campground.
In early 2016, Summer Alive received online garden donations of $400 in 24 hours, which was matched by a Seedbank grant for $445, for a total of $995 to add an additional 8 raised beds in Spring of 2016. 
New prospective projects for 2018

Small portable greenhouse
 

Children are introduced to home gardening, learning about composting, local farm products, planting and managing gardens and gaining hands on experience in our raised bed gardens.

Nutritious Food

Feeding children a hot nutritious lunch is the most important part of our program. New for 2016 the program will start in the morning and offer children nutritious breakfast snacks like yogurt, fresh fruit and they will make home made granola!
Luch includes fresh local produce like strawberry shortcake, buttered corn on the cob and fresh string beans. Every Tuesday is taco bar! Children eat as much as they want and get milk. All plates are paper and get composted. The dyed napkins are washed and reused daily. Water is available in big ice filled pitcher and paper cups. Children are encouraged to bring their own water bottles, but cheap plastic water in bottles ( the ones that are noisy when squeezed)  are discouraged and almost prohibited, due to to the pollutants the container leaches.
New for 2016 - Ice Cream or milkshakes every Wednesday! Estimated budget $85
