People who read this blog know that one of my durable themes is people who make a difference. Today I want to report about a small group of such people.
Shared Harvest is located in The Villages, an upscale retirement community sixty miles northeast of Orlando, Florida. Here, Shared Harvest is a community garden. Its entire crop is donated to a dozen nearby soup kitchens, food banks, and churches.
Shared Harvest of The Villages is a charitable project and should not be confused with Shared Harvest CSA (community-supported agriculture) projects elsewhere, whose mission is about nutrition and enabling local growers.
