Mercy Joins StarkFresh in JRC Childrens’ Garden and Urban Farm

Posted by Cindy Hickey on Thu, Dec 4, 2014 - 2:10 PM in Community Outreach


As part of our outreach efforts in northeast Canton, we continue to partner with organizations in that area on various projects. All summer long, we participated in the StarkFresh Corridor Farmers Market that is held directly across the street from St. Paul Square. Recently, Sr. Carolyn Capuano, HM, vice president of mission and ministry at Mercy, attended a ceremony held at JRC for the launch of their Children’s Garden. This garden is located on the campus of the JRC Childcare Center, directly across from the StarkFresh Urban Teaching Farm.  

Sister Carolyn says she was honored to be representing Mercy in the community and as one of the partners that helped to make the farm a reality.

Follow StarkFresh on Facebook to learn more about this organization, the farm and other initiatives.
