Westmoreland Garden Project donations reach 2,000 pounds for the year

We could not be more excited to announce our yearly donation of fresh, local food have reached 2,000lbs, most of which has been donated to the Keene Community Kitchen. The remainder of the food was used during the pilot of the Fair Share Program, an internship through Antioch where CGC coordinator Sara partnered with Keene State Dietetic Interns to facilitate cooking classes at our in-town garden sites. Everyone left with new cooking skills and a bag a veggies.

The CGC is forever grateful to be able to grow food for our community. The support from our volunteers, Antioch, community members and our partnering organizations has been astounding. Thank you to everyone who supported us along the way. As we close down the beds and plant garlic to end the season we will be reflecting on this wonderful journey.
