One of the good things about winter is that most foliage and greenery goes dormant or dies, and you get to start with a fresh clean slate for spring. It’s a chance for new beginnings in the garden as you plow under your winter rye cover crop and rotate your stock from the previous year
Great weather, a new configuration of seating and traffic flow both inside and outside Willow Creek Falls, an increased number of soup stations, and an orientation to prepare volunteers all combined to make the 2019 Bowls of Hope Feed Fannin’s most successful and satisfying fundraiser to date.
Feed Fannin has spent the past 10 years growing in Fannin County, GA, supplying fresh, locally grown produce to the Family Connection Food Pantry in Blue Ridge, GA. We wanted to take a look back at the impact that we have made.
Summer has come to an end, and we have harvested most of our produce. It’s time to put the garden to bed for the winter.
Happy 10th birthday to Feed Fannin! This coming January, Feed Fannin will celebrate a full decade of commitment to providing food for those in need and education about growing one’s own food.
The “Feed Fannin/Barbara Ferer Research & Demonstration Garden” opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and the unveiling of a sign on Aug. 8 next to the Fannin County Family Connection Food Pantry in Blue Ridge.
Feed Fannin supports both in-school and after school education programs at the three elementary schools in Fannin County.
