Additional Information. Cards with a zero balance will become inactive after 90 days and you will need to purchase a new one. Lost, stolen, damaged, destroyed or tossed cards will not be replaced by King Soopers. Gift cards cannot be purchased directly from King Soopers for this program.


Garden Notes…

Spirit Gardens at Pax Christi - The new gardening season is almost here! It’s time to remind all gardeners who want to get a plot ready for the new season that plots are available. Each plot rents for $40.00 per season to cover the cost of water. Most plots measure 12’ x 12’ and that is plenty of room to grow some great vegetables or flowers!

We will plan on having a “kick off the season” meeting the latter part of April to answer questions and to help folks prepare their plots. Remember, please, that everyone’s help is needed to keep the weeds in check. The weeds are the responsibility of the gardeners. If you are interested in a plot, contact Joanne at supportstaff@paxchristi.org or Bayard Breeding at bayardbreeding@gmail.com. Hope to see many of you soon!
