SOMERS, N.Y. -- The Somers Historical Society and Somers Library are establishing a garden at the Wright Reis Homestead. 

Representatives will bring herbs, flowers and produce donated to St. Luke's Church Food Pantry initiative and St. Luke's Church. Heirloom seeds donated from Somers Seed Lending Library, as well as heirloom plants donated by Somers Historical Society and community groups, will be grown in a dedicated garden at the Homestead, according to a press release.  

Volunteers will install, tend to the garden and make deliveries to St. Luke's Food Pantry. At the end of the gardening season, the seeds will be harvested from the heirloom plants to return to the Somers Seed Lending Library, according to the release. 

The Wright Reis Homestead was chosen as the site of this latest community collaboration between Somers Historical Society and Somers Seed Lending Library because it represents an extension of the familial relationship between the Wright family of Somers, Somers Library, Somers Historical Society and St. Luke's Church," representatives said in the release. 

For more information, residents can contact the Somers Library Seed Lending Library at 914-232-5717 or email vherman@wlsmail.org or Somers Historical Society at 914-277-4977 or email somershistoricalsoc@yahoo.com.
