Spring is Here!

Can you believe it’s already time to start growing plants for the summer season? Neither can we, though we couldn’t be more excited! This is the first year the greenhouse grew plants throughout the winter, and the second year it is being used to grow vegetable starts from seed. Volunteers have been hard at work harvesting winter greens, watering, and planting seeds. We are starting basil, cabbage, eggplant, peppers, tomatillos, tomatoes, and a small selection of flowers. Thanks to a grant provided by the Goshen Health Foundation, we have purchased electric heat mats that keep our seeds warm and encourage healthy seedling growth. The seedlings will eventually be planted throughout our Seed to Feed gardens. These gardens truly symbolize the fruit of our community’s hard work and compassion.
