Give back when you visit the garden

Naples Botanical Garden invites visitors to bring donations for the Salvation Army food bank all day Saturday, April 29. Garden members who do so will receive one free adult admission for an accompanying friend; non-members will enjoy $5 off the price of regular admission ($14.95 for adults, $9.95 for ages 4-14, free for ages 3 and younger).

Garden hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day (8 a.m. opening on Tuesdays).

The Salvation Army requests nutritious foods that are shelf-stable, not fresh or frozen. Appropriate food pantry donations include: canned or dried fruits and vegetables; juice boxes, fruit cups, pasta sauce, canned or dried beans, brown rice, peanut butter, nuts, whole grain crackers, evaporated milks, boxed macaroni and cheese, canned or boxed soups, condiments and canned meats, fish or chicken.

The food pantry cannot accept homemade goods or any product that is not in its original packaging. ¦
