Still Harvesting!

November 30th, 2006

Hakurei Turnips still fresh and heathy!
Thanks to Johnnys Selected Seeds for donating all our seeds in 2006!

I am happy to report that our team of growers has proven that we are able to extend our growing season beyond Thanksgiving this year! The crew has been harvesting chard, turnips, kale, beets and arugula all this week. Some of it was sold to restaurants and some was delivered to the MANNA food bank. We are grateful to the Carl M. Freeman Foundation for a grant that sponsored our harvests for Manna this past season. Not only does the grant ensure healthy local produce gets on to the tables of low income residents in Montgomery County but this is the kind of meaningful, fully included job that we are proud to offer our “clients” with developmental disabilities- whom we call “growers”.
