Giving Food & Flowers

Posted by on Aug 29, 2020 in Maine | No Comments

Me, doing what we do at my non-profit Veggies to Table, donating a lot of produce to the Boothbay pantry on Friday am. I also was able to make over 30 bouquets of flowers to go along with the tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, scallions and pumpkins we have been donating. Sharing the joy of flowers can’t be beat… along with feeding those in need of course.

Growing and Donating Food in COVID-19 Times

Posted by on Aug 22, 2020 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Our second growing season at Veggies to Table is going strong with over 2000 pounds of food already donated. Despite many challenges, COVID-19, social distancing, masks, drought, pests and more, we are harvesting and donating produce and flowers like crazy.

I will try to be better about updating Paris to Maine… but I am good about Instagram if you want to follow more of what’s happening on the farm.

Veggies to Table, my non-profit, has received some wonderful press of late that I am happy to share. From a feature in Forbes to the Boothbay Register and a lengthy piece on News Center Maine, it’s been exciting. More fun news to come soon.

Farm Overview Kelsey Kobik early August

We are harvesting; tomatoes, peppers, sweet potato leaves, salad, cucumbers, onions, shallots, garlic, kale, chard, beans, beets, turnips, basil, sage, scallions and tons of dahlias, zinnias, sunflowers and more.

We also have a lot of roosters. Luckily this gorgeous guy found a new home. Let me know if you want a lovely rooster to protect your ladies, or for a pet!

And we hope you can visit us… socially distanced, and with a mask of course! We love sharing the farm.
