632 pounds of organic vegies have been donated to Loaves and Fishes, and the Kelly School SUN program so far this year! Our output has been ramping up nicely, from 115 pounds in April, to 193 pounds in May, and 324 pounds in June. Keep in mind that we haven't started harvesting Tomatoes, Squash, Cucumbers or Potatoes - the "heavy weights" of the harvest.
In case you're thinking maybe it wasn't really an early spring, we are almost 200 pounds ahead of where we were at the end of June last year. It could be a new record! We really enjoy seeing the smiles from the folks at our donation places. It makes even weeding seem worthwhile (well...)
Come join us! 6801 SE 60th in Portland, every Monday and Thursday from 9am until Noon.
