Coming Soon!  Our Garden Studio, Pottery and more!

Thanks to many community volunteers including Americorps and United Way, our one room garden studio has been re roofed by J&B West and Midwest Roofing, cleaned out, painted, and readied to set up.  We would like to thank the Porter County Community Foundation for a grant to purchase the pottery equipment to get us started on making the dream of having a pottery studio become a reality. Watch our web site and follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see what new exciting programs are coming up.
