This past Tuesday was a great harvest day for Community Garden Connections.  In total, we harvested just over 146 pounds of food that we donated to the Keene Community Kitchen.  The harvest consisted of broccoli, lettuce, onions, zucchini, squash, cucumbers, kale, and chard! We always feel overly rewarded when we know that the food we donate is going to families in need.  Community Garden Connections couldn’t be more grateful for the staff and volunteers that help out with The Westmoreland Garden Project!
