Bounty of the Harvest Share

The first months of the 21 Acres Harvest Share, a food access program for people living on limited resources, have brought families over thirty varieties of fruits and vegetables. We made fun, delicious, and easy to follow recipes including green goddess herb dressing using carrot tops, spicy greens with kohlrabi, carrot salsa, pickled turnips and carrots to use on Banh Mi sandwiches, and cilantro pesto.
We held our first farm glean (picking produce left in the field after farmer’s harvest). The gleaners saved over ten pounds of snow and sugar snap peas, oregano and rosemary then learned how to dry the herbs to enjoy year round.
As local farms begin to expand their offerings throughout the season, the Harvest Share will be right along- providing people the opportunity to eat good food.
We still have spots open. Jump in and start enjoying local, tasty produce!
