Cottage Food Bank


Posted by Judy | Posted in Community Projects


In 2011, Master Gardener’s started a garden for the House of Prayer’s Cottage Food Bank, located in Blairsville.  This was an effort to add  fresh vegetables to canned and dry goods.  The garden produced 1,500 lbs of food it’s first year, consisting of zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes and cucumbers.  We also had an abundance of hot peppers, Romain and Red Leaf lettuce, and collard greens.   Lisa DeCarlo, church member and fellow master gardener, applied for a scholarship and was awarded $650 from Ga. Master Gardener Assoc.  The funds will be used to create raised beds which we hope will double our production in 2012.
