Monday, May 21 at 6:00 -- Join organic Farmer Jon Belber, of Holly Hill Farm in Cohasset, as he teaches participants all about the benefits of composting for your home garden. This insightful program, presented by Keohane Funeral Home, Interfaith Social Services, and Weymouth Food Pantry, will provide valuable insights on what materials are good for composting, choosing a location for your compost, and how best to use the compost to get the most out of your garden! Attendees will receive a free tomato plant at the workshop, donated by Keohane Funeral Home.
Plant. Grow. Share. is a continuation of the Harvest Helpers program which began several years ago to bring fresh produce to food pantry patrons. Once you get your seedlings planted and the tomatoes begin to ripen, please consider donating a portion of the harvest to Interfaith’s Food Pantry in Quincy or the Weymouth Food Pantry in Weymouth to help feed the hungry with healthy, fresh produce.
“The purpose of this program is threefold: to help reluctant backyard gardeners, to grow vegetables for hungry people and to increase awareness that food pantries need fresh produce donations,” said Rick Doane, Executive Director of Interfaith Social Services. John Keohane added, "We have grown a garden at our Quincy and South Weymouth locations for several years now to support this program and are proud to support this important community initiative. We hope you will join us!"
