The harvest of vegetables for donation to Vermont's food insecure started here yesterday. Volunteers from the VT Youth Conservation Corps and Salvation Farms spent a couple of hours picking 292 pounds of green beans. Those will be distributed to senior citizens and food shelves in northern VT.
Thousands of cabbages, three more plantings of beans, an acre of potatoes and two of winter squash are growing nicely.
We have planted several acres of cover crops in preparation for next year's plantings. The not-for-profit account is dwindling, and any help you could provide toward its replenishment will help our work go forward. Donate if you can at Barberfarm.org Thanks
