Potluck in the Park-Seabrook Gardeners Helping the Homeless

Potluck in the Park is a group of individuals, not associated with any organizations or churches, who cook food to feed the homeless every Sunday at Conway Park in Charleston. We were introduced to this group by Karen Babb when Edna Bickett reached out to her inquiring if anyone with a garden plot would be willing to donate extra food/vegetables for her to cook. During the last 8 months, we have become an integral part of this group. 

Many of the gardeners on Seabrook Island have graciously donated their extra produce for us to cook, for which we are ever grateful. Valerie Collins and Karen Babb have also helped cook some food. All dishes are welcomed and enjoyed fully by the people in need. Several people have donated gently used clothing which is always needed.  

It is heartwarming to live on Seabrook where so many are willing to help others who are less fortunate. If you would like to learn more about this service, please contact Bruce Stewart, garden manager at iclimbhigh1@comcast.net.
