Harvest time!

Kirstin Vander Giessen-Reitsma

The community garden has started harvesting in earnest! Last Thursday, 10 pounds of produce went to the local domestic assault shelter and on Saturday, 25 pounds went to the county homeless shelter. Wow! Beets, radishes, basil, lettuce, zucchini… A third local program will be part of the weekly harvest rotation as well: a free soup meal served every Tuesday and Thursday at Trinity Episcopal Church. Thank you to all who have helped create this bountiful source of abundance for our community!
