Too Many Cukes in the Kitchen?
Even if you’re not a baby boomer or a history buff, you can still bring help bring the victory garden movement back this summer by sowing some extra fruit and vegetable seeds for Philabundance’s Share the Harvest 2010 program. Philabundance, the Delaware Valley’s largest hunger relief organization, encourages home gardeners to share the fruits of their labor with neighbors in need. Donate your surplus harvest on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. from July 17 through September 25, at ten drop-off locations throughout the Delaware Valley. Philabundance will then distribute your extra zucchini or tomatoes through its network of nearly 500 member agencies in the area. Click through to see a list of Share the Harvest drop-off sites throughout the region, or visit Philabundance’s website for more information.
