Our volunteers with part of our bounty.

This past Saturday, Each Green Corner hosted another successful work day and our first harvest! Working with Arundel Elementary, our pilot Living Campus project, we harvested several pounds of pak choi and korean wormwood that we planted during our December work day. All the produce is heading to Second Harvest of Silicon Valley to provide diverse, fresh produce to hungry families here in our community.

Getting handy with the circular saw!

We also installed deer fencing to protect our spring garden bed. We can’t wait to see the first sprouts of our carrots, cabbage, swiss chard, snap peas and snow peas – all destined for Second Harvest to feed the hungry!

Our Living Campus project, at the Arundel Campus and elsewhere, is made possible by donations from community members like you.

Not only do we provide educators the space to teach students about sustainable agriculture and food insecurity, we are also able to leverage the helping hands and available land to grow sustainable, diverse produce for the hungry around the Bay Area.

Please help us make these programs possible by making a donation here.

Even little hands can contribute big things (in this case, our new deer netting).

Next up, collecting the abundant citrus harvest available now in our communities! If you live in the Peninsula region of the Bay Area and have citrus (or any produce!) you are willing to donate, contact us at donate@eachgreencorner.org.
