The Prudent Garden’s Centerpiece for Pantries

Recently we reached out to our blogger friend Debbie at The Prudent Garden to see what kind of amazing creation she could put together for our Centerpieces for Pantries Campaign. Check out what she came up with. It’s fantastic and will inspire you to get creating and sharing with your neighbors in need. Here’s an excerpt from her blog.

DIY Edible Centerpieces For Food Pantries

 

Ampleharvest.org contacted me to help out with a very special project they run throughout the holiday season. It’s called Centerpieces for Food Pantries. The concept is fun and simple: forgo a floral holiday centerpiece and make an edible one that can be donated to a food pantry after your festivities.  This is a wonderful way to give back to your community as well as spread a little holiday cheer to those who could use a little help.

Mark and I are regular participants in Plant a Row for the Hungry. This time of year our garden is producing fall and winter crops, but production has definitely slowed.  Most of what we have growing are root vegetables and leafy greens.  I was determined that I could make an attractive arrangement with what I have in the garden as well as other seasonal fruits and veggies.
