Help Harvest Hope!

 

H.O.P.E.’s “Help Harvest Hope” Community Garden Project

 

Help Our People Eat (HOPE) is reaching out to community gardens and gardeners this summer for donations of fresh produce through a new initiative call Help Harvest Hope.   Locally grown fruits and vegetables can be dropped off at HOPE’s central location or at one of the partnering collection sites around town.

Collection Sites as of June 1, 2015

YMCA at Robinhood  3474 Robinhood Rd

Gateway YWCA    1300 S Main St.

Meltdown Restaurant             505 Deacon Blvd.
