Update from the Tanyard Springs Community’s Food Bank

By Gardening Blog No Comments

June 2022 Update:

Today was the Community Garden Committee’s first harvest and food bank donation of the 2022 season – 76.5 pounds of cucumber, eggplant, squash and green peppers!

This was the largest single day’s harvest in the committee’s history.

Here is an update from the Tanyard Springs Community’s Food Bank:

Thank you again for supporting the Tanyard Springs Community's Food Bank project again this year. I've attached some photos of the planted beds and our new pollinator bed, which I'm happy to report is already being checked out by at least a few bees. Our garden also includes berry bushes, sunflowers, a shared herb garden and a rose garden.

To date our Food Bank Project has donated nearly 250 pounds of fresh produce to local food banks. The support provided by Himmel's Landscape and Garden Center has been instrumental in our success. Lisa Winters pre-selected the plants for our order and other workers assisted in loading our plants at pickup time. We look forward to continuing our association with Himmel's as time goes on.
