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.

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.
