Happy August! Things are moving right along this summer at Veggies for All. We've had some wonderful volunteers and groups join us in the field and we're excited to report that the crops are looking happy and healthy!
We have also been busy with the start of the gleaning season! Working in partnership with Unity Barn Raisers, we have already helped glean thousands of pounds of food so far this year. The food is being delivered to the Volunteer Regional Food Pantry, as well as senior housing and affordable housing sites in Unity. Contact Mary at email@example.com if you would like to hear about gleaning volunteer opportunities.
We still have a couple of big projects that we would love your help with before our fall harvests are here. Next week on Wednesday, August 8th we will be thinning beets at the School Street field. Stop by between 9am and noon, say hi and thin a couple of beets for any amount of time you can offer.
Directions: Our School Street field is located on School St, just east of the Unity Raceway, and across the street from the Unity Fire Department. The field will be marked with a white and black "VFA" sign.
