Ashland Community Garden Provides 6000 Pounds of Produce

by Cindi O’Neil

Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Ashland volunteer at their community garden each year from early March through October, providing much needed fresh produce to the Ashland Emergency Food Bank. The Rotary garden donations provide nutritious vegetables to supplement dry goods and non- perishables available in the food bank.

DG Cindi awarded the “Rotary Hero Award” to garden founders (pictured l-r below) Mark Jaffe, Juli Di Chiro and Paul Nicholson. Find out how the Ashland Garden/Emergency Food Bank model gives those in need an empowering shopping experience. Listen to the podcast here.
