Celebrating 20 Years With Our Community Partner, The UGA Extension Master Gardener Volunteers of Cobb County

 

On July 24th, the Center for Family Resources and the UGA Extension Master Gardener Volunteers of Cobb County celebrated their 20-year partnership.

Since the summer of 1999, Plant a Row for the Hungry has been one of the Cobb Master Gardeners’ projects. Cobb Master Gardeners grow fresh, organic fruits and vegetables and have donated 100% of the harvest to the Center for Family Resources. A total of 35,000+ pounds have been donated. Plant a Row for the Hungry is a people-helping-people program.

We are so fortunate to receive tomatoes, peppers, squash, beans, melons, Irish potatoes, lettuce, carrots, collard greens, broccoli, sweet potatoes and berries.

Every Wednesday, the Cobb Master Gardeners volunteer at the garden. The harvest is weighed and then donated to our food pantry to be distributed to families in need.

We are so grateful for the Master Gardener Volunteers of Cobb County and the nutritious fruits and vegetables harvested for our families.
