177.7 lbs of Food Harvested for the Community Kitchen!!!!

Hey Gardeners!

We sure hope that your week has been nothing short of dandy!  Tuesday was a great day out at The Westmoreland Garden Project.  We greeted our advisor, Jean, with tons of hugs because she had just retuned from spending almost the entire summer in Africa.  It was so nice to be reunited!

We quickly got to work to make sure that all of the plants being harvested were washed and packaged!  It is amazing how much food just one one-acre plot can produce. This week alone we harvest over 177 pounds of food!  Of course, this was all donated to the Keene Community Kitchen to ensure that local families have access to fresh and organic produce.

This weeks harvest included:
