Kabat’s Frontier ACE Hardware in Apache Junction recently donated and installed a 200-foot-long chain link fence and gates at Earth Heart Park on the campus of Horizon Health and Wellness, 625 N. Plaza Drive.

A group of community volunteers recently spent several months making improvements to the 24 garden beds in the park, including new plantings of vegetables and flowers. Unfortunately, desert wildlife have been raiding and romping in the garden, destroying the community garden and new irrigation system, according to a release.

When Horizon reached out to Kabat’s Ace Hardware, 725 W. Apache Trail in Apache Junction, for a quote on fencing to protect the garden area, the business stepped up and offered to donate a chain link fence, gates, posts and related hardware. They also volunteered to install the fencing, the release states.

On a warm and sunny Saturday morning, the Kabat’s Ace Hardware team joined Earth Heart Park Garden volunteers and installed the fencing and gates. They even brought out a grill to feed all of the volunteers who pitched in, which made for a fun and collaborative project.

The new fencing will allow community visitors of the park to enjoy the garden beds filled with a variety of unique vegetables and flowers, while protecting the garden from desert wildlife.

Kabat’s Frontier Ace Hardware has a history of being an active and supporting partner of Horizon Health and Wellness by donating their time and money for Horizon’s community events.

“We are grateful for the fence and installation donation made by Kabat’s Frontier Ace Hardware,” Laura Larson-Huffaker, CEO of Horizon Health and Wellness, said in the release. “Their efforts will allow Horizon to continue to share healthful produce from the gardens with our patients and community.”

“We at Kabat’s Ace Hardware are firm believers in ‘You Get What You Give’ philosophy,” Joseph Burks, business development manager of Kabat’s Supply LLC, said in the release. “Being a part of the community is not only vital to the success of our business, but to the success of our entire team’s well-being. To know our community in every way we can, we create a fundamental vibe that sets us as a unique local business when presented with these opportunities to help someone or be of service to our society.”

Earth Heart Park is a 4-acre park and community garden. Designed to promote health and wellness, it is a place for the community to enjoy unique desert plants, trees, and gardens, a quarter-mile walking path in the shape of a heart, and exercise stations and benches around the walking path. With the new installation of the donated fencing and gates, the community can benefit from fresh and healthy produce harvested from the garden beds.
