Harvest with Heart 2024

HWH

Food Security is a fundamental need for human beings.   Having access to affordable nutritious food is essential to healthy lifestyles both physically and emotionally.  Collaboration is key for communities to help citizens have access. Community gardens and collective kitchens are some ways to help those less fortunate.

Harvest with Heart was born from news of food scarcity becoming a significant issue in our community.  More people, even those working, are relying on the Food Bank and other organizations to supplement feeding their families.  Harvest with Heart is an opportunity to donate fresh organic vegetables back to the community.  

In the past 3 years we have collected and donated over 4500 lbs of food. That food came from donations by gardeners and plots planted specifically for Harvest With Heart. That is amazing and couldn’t be done without volunteers. I want to thank all the volunteers that have helped with Harvest with Heart over the last 3 years, from Committee Members, Grow and Plant Team, Harvest Helpers, and Donation Day Volunteers.

Due to other commitments, half our committee members have needed to step back from this important wok so with heavy hearts the remaining 3 members are unable to manage planting/maintaining and harvesting plots of the Harvest with Heart Plots. The plots have been reallocated to those on the garden waiting list.  We do hope to be able to grow specific plots for Harvest with Heart again in the future after our committee is rebuilt.

We will be reaching out in the next month to volunteers who showed interest in Harvest with Heart.  The three areas we are actively recruiting:

  1. Committee Members – The time commitment is 4 hrs per month during May-September (not including attending HWH events that you are able)
  2. Garden Support – average 2 hrs per month in June-September
  3. HWH Event Day – Time commitment is 3-4hrs per event

SAVE THE DATE:  We have chosen August 17 (back up August 24) and September 7 (back up September 14) for our Donation Days.

Please consider growing a row to Donate to Harvest with Heart.  Thank you.
