My name is Stefany McDuffie, founder of Get A Lyfe Workshops (501 c-3)located in Salem Gardens. We are a partner agency with The Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC. Tracy Blair gave me your website info. The low income apt complex houses 300 apts. We feed hundreds of people each month and are interested in receiving produce for the residnts. Your help will be greatly appreciated! Thank You.
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.
