PORTLAND — St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church’s Main Street Garden has received a grant of $2,230 to add fruit trees and fruit bushes, along with a deer fence, to expand its offerings to the local food bank, Wallowa County Alternative Education High School and Head Start, according to a press release.

The American Association of Retired Persons announced the award Monday, July 25, as part of an effort to help communities across Oregon that are working to become more livable for residents of all ages. AARP is working in partnership with local leaders, organizations and dedicated residents to help make that vision a reality.
