A CFC Year in Review

Joe Coan, President (a.k.a. Head Cabbage) of the Community Food Collaborative (CFC) spoke with the Club recently about the first year of the garden. The garden is located near the lower back parking lot behind the Sturbridge Town Hall. Joe gave us a history on the plans, development and progress along the way. Everyone on the board, Joe and many volunteers worked hard on everything that needed to be done this first year. The yield from the garden surpassed our expectations leaving us with a challenge to expand next year in an effort to increase our yield. To date we have delivered over 1,500 pounds of fresh organic vegetables to the St. John Paul II Food Pantry and we still have to deliver the potatoes. We have a long “To Do” list this winter after we put the garden to bed. Our final work night is this Thursday after which we’ll celebrate our success. Joe acknowledged and thanked the board members, our sponsors, donors and all our volunteers who helped us this year. Keep checking our Facebook page for updates. https://www.facebook.com/CFCGardens/.
