Updates from Veggies to Table: Harvesting, a week in a Paris apartment, French macarons, fall help, ball jars and mulch

Wed, 09/07/2022 - 3:00pm

Fall is in the air, and Veggies to Table is busy harvesting tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkins, squash, and more. They have now donated 36,000+ pounds of organice produce and 40,000+ joyful flower stems to those in need of food and joy in just over three years.

Sweepstakes update: Win a Week in Paris

There is still time to enter their French themed sweepstakes for a chance to win a week in a Paris apartment, a weekend in Montreal, French chocolates, cookbooks, linens, soap and so much more. Enter to help them grow even more produce to donate to the 1 in 5 kids/ 1 in 7 adults who go hungry daily in our community. The sweepstakes ends Sept. 17 and winners will be drawn the 22nd.

Macaron Class

Join Veggies to Table founder, and French native, Alain Ollier for a French macaron cooking class this Saturday, Sept. 10, (there are three time slots to pick from) at the Penobscot Bay Language school in Rockland. You will learn to make these delicious treats and be sent home with some too, bien sûr! There will also be beautiful Veggies to Table flowers for sale in the gardens of the school.

Fall Help, Glass jars, Chips, leaves and more

Veggies to Table can use more helping hands this fall to harvest, plant, mow, mulch, prune, and prepare the farm for winter. They can also use help planting garlic and tulips and digging and dividing dahlias (1000 plants!), with grant writing, events, and other tasks behind the scenes. And, if you have chips and leaves, they will happily take them off your hands to use to mulch the farm. Glass jars are welcome too. Rather than recycle them, Veggies to Table will use them to keep their donated flower bouquets fresh!
