Gardens are a great way for everyone to grow their own fresh vegetables, and the FRESH Project is making that even easier by growing local gardens and giving out free vegetable seeds. Through partnerships with area farmers, the Ho-Chunk Nation, and the Stockbridge-Munsee Community, the FRESH Project is sponsoring local gardens in five locations within the Shawano County area. Produce harvested from the gardens will be donated to food pantries in Shawano County, FRESH Project’s Share the Bounty tables, Safe Haven, SAM25, and used for community dinners and food demonstrations, ensuring others in our community have access to healthy produce. The FRESH Project is also giving out free vegetable seeds that anyone can use in their home gardens. Making it easier to get fresh produce is part of the project’s mission to make sure everyone has access to good and healthy food. Anyone interested in volunteering to help with the gardens, or getting free seed packets, can contact the FRESH Project’s office at 715-526-5206 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
