Attention: Gardeners!

11705327_984618381568442_4222946367960324685_nWe have some awesome harvest news!

This past Tuesday, a bunch of our wonderful volunteers and staff members congregated out at The Westmoreland Garden Project to help harvest MORE food!

After some weeding, harvesting, washing the vegetables, washing some more veggies, preparing the boxes, and putting everything on the scale, we  delivered our second harvest to The Keene Community Kitchen!

In total, we donated 46.25 pounds of food!  11692557_984618624901751_1385853832084236069_nWe harvested 39 bunches of lettuce weighing 16.75 pounds, 12 bunches of chard at 5.5 pounds, 16 bunches of kale at 4.5 pounds, 6 bunches of parsley at 0.5 pounds, 9 bunches of chives at 0.5 pounds, 10 bunches of lettuce mix at 4.5 pounds, 1.5 pounds of summer squash, and 12.5 pounds of broccoli!  A success to say the least.

Of course, we wouldn’t be able to operate so successfully if it wasn’t for the help of the Keene Community.  To every person that donates their time and efforts to Community Garden Connections, THANK YOU!  Together, we can help beat food insecurities!  😀
