Many hands making light work

Our vegetables (and weeds) are loving life despite the hot, dry weather.  Hannah and Michelle have been hard at work, cycling plants through the garden and sharing abundant deliveries of lettuce, spring onions and herbs to CHD’s Not Bread Alone in Amherst.  We are grateful for Bob Stover’s committed collaboration with Food For All.

To keep up with it all, we’ve reached out to our community members, students, friends and families to join us in our effort to get more fresh food where it needs to go in Amherst.  We’ve hosted two of our monthly community workdays and have really appreciated additional helping hands in our garden.

Good conversation, laughter, relaxation, and connection with community & nature are all reasons why we keep hosting these events.  There is something so satisfying about rescuing a long row of carrots getting taken over by grass. A task that would take 1 person nearly 10 hours can take a small group 45 minutes!

Please join us in July & August. STAY TUNED for more updates and announcements of our summer workshops, including a tour of the garden!
