Mishawaka Education Foundation Community Greenhouse Ribbon Cutting

The Mishawaka Parks Department will be having a ribbon cutting event for the Mishawaka Education Foundation Community Greenhouse on Saturday October 19th at 11am on the corner of Broadway and Marion Street where the newly constructed greenhouse is located. This is the 2nd City of Mishawaka community fundraiser project made possible by the Indiana Housing & Community Development Authority CreatINg Places program which provided a 100% match to funds raised by the community. The Mishawaka Education Foundation generously donated $10,000 to bring life to this new structure and 77 other patrons followed their lead to help raise the necessary funds.
