An update from our friends at Tanyard Springs:
“I’m writing to thank you and Himmel’s for another year of support for the Tanyard Springs Community Garden Committee’s food bank project.
The Tanyard Springs community has a garden where residents can rent garden plots for personal use. Garden beds that are either unrented or are rented and donated back to the food bank project are used by the committee to grow vegetables and herbs that are donated to local food banks.
This year, we were able to donate 491 pounds of cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, squash and melons to area food banks [nearly double the 249 pounds we donated last year] using plants selected from Himmel’s in consultation with Himmel’s staff.
In addition, with your advice, we planted a pollination garden with perennials to attract bees and butterflies that will continue to enhance our community and support our garden project.
Again, our committee appreciates the support and advice Himmel’s has provided to our effort for the last three years.”
