Supplies Needed

We are fundraising now to expand our educational offerings for schools and parents, and prepare for the Spring plantings, when we give away garden plants to US residents who sign a Pledge To Share from their garden.

We have a (chicken) Plate Sale fundraiser this upcoming weekend in Zebulon NC and are seeking help from local farmers and growers. We need the following supplies ASAP (we hope you will donate):

- chickens (150+)
- 50lbs of locally grown potatoes
- 10 to 20lbs of locally grown tomatoes
- barbecue sauce
- 10 to 20lbs of locally grown green beans

Please email if you can help. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and can provide a receipt for your donation.

Thank you!


Gardens winding down but still productive

We were able to gather a lot of produce this week for the Saturday food giveaway. We even had enough food to give some to the Louisburg soup kitchen. Even though it is late in the growing season (August) the gardens are still kicking out peas, beans, tomatoes, and peppers like crazy.

Thanks to Serve.Gov, Bill G. found us and came out Thursday and helped us pick throughout the morning at three big gardens. Nadia also came and helped Frank and I pick.

We were sorry to see at one of the donated gardens where we pick that the cucumbers had overripened and been lost. Still, we had a full car full of food — and more gardeners dropped off boxes of more: cantaloupes, cucumbers, zucchinis, and more!

During the giveaway, many families and providers stopped by and picked up several bags each of produce. We were able to give away hundreds of tomatoes (everyone around here seems to still be getting tons of tomatoes).
