White House Garden Harvest Benefits Local Food Shelf
The White House garden bore a successful second harvest in its first year of existence, and the bounty will be donated to Miriam’s Kitchen, a local food shelf.
The initial cost for soil and seeds to plant was $180 and the payoff has been the production of more than 750 pounds of fresh produce! Possibly more valuable, however, is that the local school children that assisted in planting, weeding and harvesting the garden have learned the skills to start their own backyard gardens and the importance of eating fresh, local produce. Way to go!
