What’s growing on? Food Justice Garden update

Volunteers needed in busy summer months.

May has been our garden’s most prolific month yet, yielding 267 pounds of produce. So far this year, the garden has produced 589 pounds of food for local food pantries.

What were our top crops in May?

Lettuce and chard – 83 pounds

Carrots – 74 pounds

Greens – 39 pounds

Potatoes – 40 pounds

Kale – 36 pounds

What can I do, you ask?

  • Put those garden workdays on your calendar! Come out to help weed, water and harvest on Tuesday mornings from 8 am to 10 am and Saturday mornings from 8:30 am to 11 am.
  • Help make a dent in the pile of wood chips delivered for the garden in early June. The wood chips are used to line the pathways between beds, keeping weeds and mud from taking over.
  • Home gardeners can plant a row for our neighbors. This extra produce can be dropped off at the garden on Tuesday mornings from 8 am to 10  am. Food is delivered to the pantry the same day.
