Towntalk: High yield

Members of the Penn Valley team of the Food Bank of Nevada County’s Healthy Harvest Project Garden reached the one ton mark on Sept. 8. In addition, the Grass Valley team is just 100 pounds short of also hitting one ton this season. Expected output for both gardens for 2014 is over three tons of fresh vegetables, said garden coordinator Ellen Persa. Produce is distributed to those in need directly through the Food Bank and their donations to other agencies, such as Hospitality House and Sierra Roots. The Penn Valley garden will expand this winter for the third time. Pictured above, from left, are Penn Valley volunteers Pete Molloy, Susan Molloy, Bob Mack, John Smedberg and Gwen Smedberg. To volunteer, call Persa at 530-272-3796.
