Final harvest over the past two Fridays. By mid-morning today 30 volunteers were picking produce. By the end of the day about 8500 pounds of squash, peppers and pumpkins were ready for distribution to hungry Vermonters.
Thanks to Youth Build of Burlington, Community Bank, True North and the marketing staff from NRG for their assistance in bringing in the last crops.
Hats off to Carly Monahan of Salvation Farms who coordinated volunteer picking efforts here at the farm for the past three months and oversaw distribution of approximately 15 tons of produce.
One of the eleven bins, nearly five tons total, awaiting delivery to Salvation Farms thanks to the donated services of Black River Produce.
