Plant a Row for the Hungry

May. 22, 2020


Join Chadwick Arboretum Volunteers and Plant a Row for the Hungry

  1. Grow 1 extra row of produce in your garden
    1. The size of your garden does not matter – even growing in containers. 
    2. Take care to follow COVID guidelines if heading out into the stores to purchase garden supplies. There are many ways to order online and have same-day pickup or delivery at several garden centers around Columbus. 
  2. Harvest and bag up your produce, taking care to wash hands and sanitize sinks/surfaces/bowls your produce may touch. 
    1. Check out OSU’s Powerpoint Presentation on Good Agricultural and Handling Practices here for lots of details! (I recommend slides 55-56.) 
  3. Donate the produce at your local pantry. Call 614-277-2663 to find a pantry near you. 
  4. Email Julia Wilson at Chadwick Arboretum with the amount of pounds that you donated (and a photo, if you can!)
