Portage Township Trustee Brendan Clancy, along with the staff at the Bonner Senior Center recently received a 250-dollar “Edible Community Garden Grant” from the Porter County Master Gardeners Association. The Bonner Senior Center has formed a garden club comprised of senior volunteers to prepare, plant, and tend the garden, which has become a therapeutic outlet for seniors with a passion for gardening, but who lack the space of funds to establish their own. Last year one-thousand pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables were donated to the Portage Food Pantry and this year's grant will be used to continue the community garden.
