It is with pride that I tell you about the University of Delaware teaming up with the Food Bank of Delaware to create a “Garden for the Community.”
The University of Delaware will devote 16,000 square feet of its Newark farm to a community garden, with the produce donated to the food bank. On May 15 and 16, the college will hold “Plant a Garden for the Community Day,” when volunteers can help get the garden into shape. (If I weren’t due that weekend I would be there with bells on!)
“Our goal is simple – to help the Food Bank meet their mission – a community without hunger – by providing Delaware families with fresh, local food.”
The success of the garden will depend on the generosity of local business donors, community volunteers, and CANR faculty, students and professionals. Please consider helping us establish this garden.
To join as a business partner or volunteer, please contact Alyssa Collins at (302) 831-2882.
