River Run’s Raised Bed Garden is Winding Down for 2018

As some of you might recall River Run moved its ten raised beds from the twenty bed community garden late this spring (June 20th). We were able to plant in those remaining ten beds and a few other beds that we had established in other locations in previous years.

While some vegetables are left to harvest (mostly some additional potatoes, carrots, chard, kale, and beets), I estimate we produced, harvested, and distributed over 468 pounds of food during the 2018 growing season.

Produce was distributed to fifteen households, assisting at least 37 people with their food security. Special thanks to the four individuals that helped to relocate the ten River Run raised beds.

Work is underway to start preparing the beds for the 2019 growing season.
