Harvest Sharing Garden

When researching how to build a community garden we learned that wasted produce can be a big problem. It is easy to become overloaded with too much of a good thing and gardeners can end up with tomatoes spoiling on the vine.

In our planning we incorporated a program for growing food to donate year round, thinking that if we already have a donation system functioning, it will be easy for other CCG gardeners to add their excess to our donation. We call it our Harvest Sharing Program. We have 3 garden plots for growing veggies, one for growing herbs, one for rhubarb & strawberries, and 22 blueberry bushes.

In 2012 we gave away 860 pounds, in 2013 we gave away 1,300 pounds, in 2014 we gave away 1,600 pounds. In 2015 we gave away 1,480 pounds and in 2016 we gave away 1,250 pounds. Will we give away 2,000 pounds in 2017? Stay tuned!
