Today we're going GREEN in honor of the holiday!
My stepmom has always liked to garden. In the city where she lives now, he shares a space of land with some neighbors in her community. They are all a part of this campaign called Plant A Row for the Hungry. They grow their own produce in their gardens, keep some and give away the rest.
It was started to "encourage gardeners to grow a little extra and donate the produce to local soup kitchens and food pantries serving the homeless and hungry in their local communities"
by the Garden Writer's Association.
Recently we all went as a family to tend to the garden. It was definitely a highlight for me. Spending time with one another, while giving back was a really good feeling. Not to mention the kids loved it!
My girl served as the head of the hose aka "The Water Queen." It was three generations working together for others. I am proud of my parents for doing something so selfless. And I'm thankful to them for letting us participate.
If you have a GREEN Thumb, or know someone who does, please let them know about this invaluable program, where they can "Harvest Hope" for the hungry.
