This is the second gleaning in The Garden at 485 Elm’s partnership with Community Harvest of Central Vermont.
The first gleaning in July yielded 40 pounds of food. Today, volunteers gleaned over 75 pounds of food. It has been delivered to The Montpelier Senior Activity Center‘s FEAST Meals Program and Capstone Community Action‘s Community Kitchen Academy in Barre (a joint partnership with the Vermont Food Bank) and to the Capstone Food Shelf.
The Garden at 485 Elm is a community garden feeding the gardeners who work this land and, thanks to Central Vermont Community Harvest, other Vermonters who need fresh, healthy, delicious food.
