Bill Waskiewicz, the owner of Chester’s Flowers on York Street, is seated here behind the bevy of bedding plants he donated to For The Good’s Linwood Place Community Garden in July.
These plants continue to thrive and sustain those at risk for hunger in Utica’s food desert. Over the years Chester’s Flowers has been a valuable and loyal supporter of FTG’s Community Gardens. Community support is critically important as New York State funding for Gardens has not been forthcoming. Thanks, Bill. You’re the best.
