All produce deliveries from gardeners can be brought to the community room monday - friday 9am-5pm. Mercy Housing-Ardenaire provides affordable housing to low income familes, and provides programs and services for residents as well as those living in the surrounding community.Ardenaire has a regulary scheduled food pantry on Fridays between 9am-12pm, but is willing to accept food donations any business day during the week.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
