Sharing extra produce

A friend and I harvested ~ 20 lbs of chard and collards for the Kitchen Ready's Southside Kitchen today, from the Southside Community Garden, and then continued with another 20 lbs or so of chard, collards, and kale, that I took to the YMCA's Healthy Living food pantry for distribution this afternoon.

one of the boxes from last week's harvest (~ 10 lbs)
Another volunteer took ~ 30 heads of butter lettuce to the BeLoved Shelter, just one of the many organizations who serve meals and provide shelter to folks who need it here in Asheville.

Volunteers have created a productive garden here, with the support of the Housing Authority of Asheville and Green Opportunities, a local non-profit.

It's great to see abundant harvests going to good places.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
