Dennis’ 7 Dees garden centers are proud to announce our participation in a program called “Plant a Row for the Hungry” (PAR) which was started more than 20 years ago by the Garden Writers Association. PAR is a people-helping-people program that encourages gardeners to grow a little extra and donate the produce to local soup kitchens and food pantries serving the homeless and hungry in their local communities.
