It's been a busy few weeks of traveling the state to meet some of the dedicated gardeners who are participating in Grow a Little Extra this year! We're excited to report that local food pantries across the state might receive more than just a little fresh produce come late summer and fall—they might receive A LOT. Keep your eyes peeled for garden signs in your community!
With summer just around the corner, even more gardens are coming to life in communities across Wyoming! From the newly-revived Salvation Army garden in Cheyenne that hasn't been active in years to the Afton Food Pantry which has already harvested its first crop of lettuce, we're rooting for fresh produce of all kinds!
Do you want to get involved with Grow a Little Extra this year? Whether you're helping out in a community garden or a proud tender of a home garden in your backyard, you can donate your fresh, extra produce, too! Visit our program page to learn about the details—including information about how and where to donate. Even if you aren't a gardener, chances are you know someone who might be—so spread the word! Neighbors caring for neighbors by sharing extra is just one of the many characteristics that make Wyoming such a wonderful place to live. As always, thank you for your generosity. It makes such a difference in the lives of so many.
