Community Garden Club Raises Over $1,100 for Food Pantry

The Pingree Community Garden Club held their second annual Mother's Day plant sale recently and raised over $1,100 for the Acord Food Pantry. The students grew 250 tomato, cucumber, and pepper seedlings in the greenhouse, and then sold them to members of the school community. In addition to the plant sale, the Garden Club used the greenhouse throughout the winter to grow and then harvest lettuce, kale, arugula, and radishes, which were then donated to Acord.
