As cool temperatures came into Provo over the weekend, we harvested the few remaining vegetables and cleaned out the planters.  In the end, we produced 473 lbs. of produce for the Utah Food Bank.  Though we were a ways off of last years total, we learned some things that we can do better next year to help us get closer to the 1000 lb. mark, including installing better soils and giving some of the plants more room to grow.

Thanks for all those who helped water and harvest this year and those who published stories (NPR, KSL), or mentioned the garden in other blogs, as this only helps to show that anyone can turn otherwise unused spaces into something that can help the community by just donating a couple hours of time each week.


  1. Have you considered putting in winter crops, such as carrots or other tubers, parsley or other herbs?

  2. I would like to contact someone about this program. Where can I find a phone number?
