Plant a Row for the Gleaners

The following was sent by Norman Farrell, President of the Ridgefield Gleaners.

Hello Ridgefield Gardeners,

It’s still a bit cooler and wetter than normal for mid-June. Hopefully that will work out for the best in our gardens as summer comes on. We have a significant start on our garden and hope you are having good luck as well.

We are the Ridgefield Community Gleaners, an all-volunteer, non-profit group working to provide fresh produce to those in need in Ridgefield. Due to the pandemic and drop in the economy, the need in our community is greater than ever. Please consider planting another plant or another row in your gardens for donation through the Gleaners. We are available to harvest and/or pick up produce and get it to the Family Resource Center as always. The Gleaners have continued a weekly donation of 100 pounds of fresh produce which we are now sourcing from Rosauers. It will be wonderful to displace some of this with fresh locally grown goodies.

Please also remember that the Gleaners are a 501(c)(3) organization and we would welcome cash donations to further what we can do to support the Family Resource Center and our community in this time of many challenges.

All the best with your gardens.
Norman Farrell

President, Ridgefield Community Gleaners Association
