Forty pound harvest with flowers and fliers

Basin’s Backyard Garden volunteers had a beautiful helper today. Thank to gardener Lori Goetzfridt for capturing this butterfly before it flitted off.

The gardeners picked cucumbers, beans, lettuce, kale, peas, eggplant, and banana peppers today. Along with one gardener’s donation from home, the total weight was 40 pounds of garden goodness! The donation went to Community Action Program Region VII.

Remember, if you have produce in your garden you’d like to donate, the Hunger Free Garden Project has a list of pantries accepting produce.
