Basin’s Backyard Garden volunteers harvest and donate 71 lbs. of produce

Basin's Backyard Garden

Chris Gessele, Basin Electric staff writer and garden volunteer, hands off the 71 pounds of produce to Marie Wald, IDA case manager, food pantry coordinator and housing coordinator for Community Action Program Region VII.

This week may have officially marked the start of the fall season, but to many Basin’s Backyard Garden volunteers it’s still harvesting season.

On Thursday, garden volunteers harvested 71 pounds of produce. Today, garden volunteers Chris Gessele and Jean Schafer donated it to Community Action Program Region VII. Among the produce donated were tomatoes, peppers, corn, zucchini and even a pumpkin that grew through the fence!

And the garden’s not done producing yet. There’s still more tomatoes and pumpkins that will be ready to be picked soon. Stay tuned to find out where we’ll donate next!
