Milk and Honey Farm Donates Half-Ton of Organic Vegetables

Volunteers show off over 70 pounds of produce harvested for donation.

Milk and Honey Farm at the Boulder JCC just surpassed donating 1,000 pounds of organic produce to Community Food Share and Harvest of Hope Food Pantry. “The fresh, beautiful produce donated from Milk & Honey Farm allows us to serve nutritious, locally-grown food to approximately 1,200 individuals each week, which helps us fulfill our mission of providing healthy supplemental food to Boulder families and clients in need of food assistance,” Julie Gavin, Food Services Manager of Harvest of Hope Pantry. The farm expects to donate at least 1,000 more pounds  before the growing season is completed.

Volunteers harvest produce on a Monday morning Community Tzedakah Harvest.

Farm staff together with community volunteers harvest produce every Monday morning at 7:45. New volunteers are welcome to join! Email Becca@boulderjcc.org if you are interested in helping.

Milk and Honey Farm was able to establish its new Tzedakah Garden this year with the help of a garden grant from the Colorado Garden Foundation and  a mini-grant from Hazon. The two organizations also helped support the establishment of the main educational garden beds last year.

To celebrate our gardens and the opening of our new barn, we will be hosting a Grand Opening and Sukkot celebration on October 8, 2018 from 2-4pm. Families welcome; there will be a scavenger hunt, hands-on activities, food and more! From 4-6pm there will be a Happy Hour and live music from local band Hadgabah.
