Huge thank you to our many volunteers and coordinators that have participated this year! Here are a few of the garden updates:
Mountain View: Our flagship garden is about to change! The hoop house formerly located here has been dismantled and will be re-erected at the Grange Garden location. In the coming months we will plant a “You Pick” garden where food bank patrons will be welcome to harvest before or after they visit the main food bank.
PT High School: Student education has taken a priority this year and more and more students are reaping the benefits as they taste the local produce in their cafeteria. The school is also working on ideas to preserve the fresh summer produce for the fall and winter months.
Quimper Grange: This garden received a new deer fence and is prepping a location for the former Mountain View hoop house to reside. This location was able to donate produce to the food bank every week this year.
At this time, garden locations are bringing in salad mix, kale, chard, spinach, strawberries, artichokes, peas, rhubarb, sage, chives, garlic, onions, lemon balm, head lettuce, cat mint and broccoli sprouts! If you have time and a desire to help our efforts please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by one of the garden locations when you see us there!
