Thanks to all of the countless volunteers who helped make this a record harvest for the Asbury Garden Ministry.  This ministry features an ecumenical garden that plants and harvests produce for 25 food pantries, food serving centers, and for people who may not have access to fresh produce.   Wow, what great gifts this Earth can yield!

Bettendorf Kiwanis in the news! April 12, 2014

In 2013, the Bettendorf Kiwanis Club awarded a grant to Edison Academy, which allowed their students to write and publish books.  The Edison Academy then took the books and read them to young students at Riverdale Heights Elementary school.

Click here for the story in the Bettendorf News.

Some of the Edison Academy students discussed their new literary piece, with their teacher Shawn Rice, and gave us an update on the project in March.  What great people!  We particularly liked the fact that while the students apparently initially thought they couldn’t write a book, they ended loving their books and wanting to do more writing.  What an inspiration!
