New England’s whirlwind summer has passed us by and we’re preparing to plant our garlic bulbs and tuck in for the cold months ahead. Gardens at the Eastport school and Labor of Love Food Pantry have continued to expand and we’re looking forward to more growth next year.
Check out http://kgi.org/labor-love-victory-garden for an overview of the food pantry garden project. This year’s garden produced plentiful peas, beans, delicata squash, garlic, lettuces, and herbs. Harvests were shared during food pantry distribution. Eastport Elementary students also shared in the bounty. They made dilly beans and pickled beets after a morning visit to the garden, and we’re looking forward to more opportunities to connect.
