This week’s picture was taken at the “Plant A Row” event at Logan’s Trading Company on Saturday. Mayor Meeker and the radio hosts from the “Weekend Gardener” show, Mike Raley and Anne Clapp, were on hand to help kick things off.
“Plant a Row” is an movement to encourage gardeners to plant an extra row of produce each year and donate their surplus to local food banks, soup kitchens and service organizations to help feed America’s hungry. The people at Logan’s were encouraging people to participate by providing a free bag of compost and a packet of seeds. You can still swing by this weekend to pick up your starter kit while supplies last. Then when you have some veggies to donate swing back by Logan’s to drop off your donation for the Interfaith Food Shuttle to pick up.
