First Harvest of 2023

Omigosh what a harvest! Yesterday (July 27th) was the first corn harvest of the 2023 season and oh boy what a harvest it was. Despite challenging weather and serious racoon pressure the harvest was bountiful beyond my hopes. Huge thanks to Sarah York, Jordan Fields, Sebastian Lawler and Trenne Fields for braving the heat and humidity to help provide for families in need. We started at 8:00 AM to beat the heat and the corn was delivered to the food banks by noon. The Camden Promise in North Minneapolis was the first stop and they took all they could use. Then it was off to the Seward Neighborhood and Pillsbury United Communities at Waite House. Thank you, thank you to the volunteer harvesters and all the folks at the food banks. We know this is a drop in the bucket of need, but it is a joy to share this abundance!
