Plant a Row for the Hungry

Winnebago County master gardeners are feeding the hungry this month and need your help as well.

They're collecting excess produce from local farmers, gardeners and orchard owners. They started collecting donations at Edgebrook Farmers' Market this morning.

Plant a Row will set up a booth there every Wednesday morning to pick up excess harvest. The national coordinator of the program says anyone's donations even from market shoppers will be greatly appreciated.

Roscoe farmers market is accepting donations every Thursday between 10 am & noon. Klehm Arboretum is also accepting vegetable and fruit donations every week day.
