The response was extremely enthusiastic! Everyone was delighted to receive a choice of tomatoes, squash, zucchini, peppers, swiss chard, and/or herbs. In many cases, the recipients had garden space so were excited to receive some plants to start their own garden. For those that didn’t have a place to plant, we provided larger containers for them to transfer their plants. It was a great partnership between Moving to Conservers, Gaia Herbs, the Hunger Coalition, Roosterhead Plantation, and the Transylvania Master Gardeners. Our hope is that more people will begin to grow their own [...]
