Another bumper crop for Giving Garden

Another bumper crop for Giving Garden



Some things can go on, even in the midst of a pandemic. More than 20 volunteers gathered, wearing masks, on Oct. 3, in the Durham Middlefield Giving Garden to mark the end of a second successful growing season.

This summer, 1,197 pounds of organic produce were distributed through Durham and Middlefield Social Services and senior centers and Mauro Meadow and Sugarloaf Housing, with overflows going to Middletown’s Amazing Grace Food Pantry and soup kitchen.

The star product this growing season was tomatoes, with 364 pounds harvested and distributed.

Giving Garden manager Betsy St. John divulged plans for next season, which include a flower patch to be managed by local Girl Scouts.
