HarvestShare was recently awarded a grant from the AARP for its mission to combat food insecurity. We provide seniors with the opportunity to volunteer in our grow-to-donate “Giving Garden” which supports Nourishing Bethesda, a food assistance provider that distributes food and fresh produce to a population that is over 25 % seniors. The garden will use the funds to purchase ergonomic tools and plants supports to facilitate gardening for older volunteers as well as raise some of the garden beds to make planting, weeding, and harvesting more accessible to all. A big thank you to AARP for awarding us this generous gift.
