Lowes Donation Helps United Helpers Construct Eight Raised Garden Beds



OGDENSBURG - Thanks to a donation of lumber and materials worth more than $1,200, the residents at seven United Helpers facilities will be able to enjoy gardening this spring and summer.


Ogdensburg Lowes Assistant Manager Bob Ingersoll, Ogdensburg Store Manager Jordan Jock and Live Nursery Specialist Brian Bennett, who also operates an organic farm in the Heuvelton area, recently spent time at the McIntyre IRA helping the home’s residents plant tomatoes, peppers and a variety of herbs and spices in one of the newly built raised garden beds.


The raised garden beds were built by Mosaic Maintenance staff and placed at Pleasant Valley IRA in Norwood, Cherry Street IRA in Potsdam, Irish Settlement Road IRA in Heuvelton, Lisbon IRA, as well as McIntyre Road IRA, Centennial Manor IRA and Gateway Apartments in Ogdensburg. An eighth box was also placed at the United Helpers Management Company in Ogdensburg.
