The Interfaith Garden officially closed its gate on Oct 27th for this year.  Over the season, the Garden delivered 1,666 pounds of fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs to the Lexington Food Pantry.  45 varieties of produce and herbs were harvested. Top crop?  Would you believe bok choy at 257 pounds?  With many Asian clients at the Pantry, this vegetable was happily welcomed.  The Garden’s success was the outcome of a true community effort with 422 volunteer slots filled by 169 individuals.  In true Hancock fashion, our volunteers represented about 10% of the manpower but filled about 20% of the slots.  Carolyn Wortman of the Pantry thanked the Garden for its wonderful produce;   Laurel and I, as garden volunteer co-ordinators, in turn thank our Hancock gardeners who were so invested in its success.  See you next year!
