Food Share asks gardeners to plant extra vegetables

LONGMONT — Community Food Share (CFS), Boulder County’s food bank, is asking gardeners to plant an extra row or two this spring and summer for those in need.

CFS is seeking the support of groups willing to grow extra vegetables during the spring and summer months for the Plant-A-Row for the Hungry campaign for 1999. The Plant-A-Row campaign provides an opportunity for individuals, businesses, schools and other community groups to address an ongoing need in Boulder county. In Boulder County three garden centers are participating in the 1999 campaign: The Flower Bin, Lafayette Florist and Greenhouse and McGuckin Hardware. Interested gardeners can pick up a free starter packet, including seeds, a row marker and other materials at any of these centers.

Plant-A-Row vegetables can be grown in backyards, community garden plots, or in larger gardens on business or institution property. Harvested vegetables can be dropped off at these same locations. The national goal for the program is “a million pounds pledged by the year 2000.” Interested gardeners should contact Eric Johnson at CFS at (303) 652-3663.
