The Master Gardener Volunteers recently held their annual Holiday Party.  In lieu of bringing an overabundance of homemade goodies to sample, they opted to divide the group in half.  One half did bring the delectable foods to eat and the other brought non-perishable goods to donate to the local food bank.  When all was tallied up, they donated 92 pounds of food.
Not only are they generous this time of year, but throughout the growing season fruits and vegetables harvested from our Arboretum Gardens are also given to the food bank.  Dan and Bill, our curators, and their helpers picked over 500 pounds of fresh produce this year.  So we thank all for the extra work it took to make this happen in 2012 and look forward to what the next year will bring.
