We learned today about a wonderful program in Hamilton and Wenham, through which gardeners in the community are growing an extra row of crops this summer for donation to the local food pantry.
The “Grow a Row” project of Hamilton-Wenham Green, a citizens group focused on sustainability, kicked off this week and has 25 participants so far. Local families have agreed to plant an extra row of tomatoes, lettuce and/or carrots, and donate the produce to Acord Food Pantry in Hamilton. The project’s goal this summer is to raise and donate 300 lbs. of crops
