Disney VoluntEARS Plant an Herb Garden At HOME

A group of VoluntEARS from Disney’s Boardwalk Inn delivered and help to plant an herb garden of basil, oregano and rosemary at The Center’s HOME program in Kissimmee.

This volunteer effort was coordinated by Boardwalk Cast Members to assist the residents at HOME (Helping Others Make the Effort,) which provides services to homeless families in need.

Boardwalk Inn General Manager Dave Venables said: “It feels great to be able to contribute in any way we can in our community. One of the things our company stands for is being a great partner in Central Florida. We look forward to more opportunities like this one.”

Each family living at HOME were given a terra cotta pot filled with the donated herbs and Boardwalk Inn’s Chef Ken Hittman and Sous Chef Jarrod Pearman put on a cooking demonstration to teach the families how to incorporate the herbs into their meals.
