We had a very good year–up almost 20 lbs of food over last year with two 12 x 4 foot raised beds. The kids helped us plant the seeds and the Frame Green Team pulled weeds, watered, harvested, and hauled food to various food pantries in the area. We have two large compost bins that church members contribute to as well as a brand new rain barrel that was just completed. It can hold about 320 gallons of water and has a nice wooden surround built by one of our church members, so it looks attractive. We’ll start to use this in 2015. We plan to build another raised bed next spring as we are getting lots of compost and seem to have enough sunlight in that area. We had very good luck with lettuce this year harvesting two crops, probably because of the cooler weather. This is an enjoyable and really valuable project that helps some of our less fortunate neighbors get organic, quality food.
