Ashe Outreach Ministries Receives Over 1,000 Plants from Grow and Share


Thanks to Grow and Share for donating over 1,000 plants last week to Ashe Outreach Ministries’ Outgrow Hunger Program! After our first Come to the Table Conference Steering Committee meeting at RAFI’s office in Pittsboro, we loaded up Rob Brooks’ truck with heirloom varieties of tomatoes, tomatillos, melons, okra, cucumbers and summer squash. Rob will share the plants with residents of Ashe County involved in the pilot year of Outgrow Hunger, which aims to strengthen rural food security by facilitating backyard family and church gardens and increasing the amount of local produce in Ashe County’s emergency food supply.
