SPRINGFIELD, Pa. — The “Neighbor 2 Neighbor Harvest Collection” is a joint effort between Penn State Extension Delaware County Master Gardeners, Delaware County Parks and Recreation Dept., Penn State Extension Food, Families, & Health educators, and the Delaware County Interfaith Food Assistance Network.
Volunteers will be collecting excess harvest every Monday morning from 10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Rose Tree Park Community Gardens via contactless drop-off. Penn State Extension Master Gardeners will then deliver the harvest each week to a pantry in need. Donations will be weighed and the data will be added to the Philadelphia Horticulture Society’s Harvest 2020 Campaign.
Rose Tree Park is located at 201 West Front Street, Media, PA 19063 and the park’s website is https://www.delcopa.gov/
For more information please contact Jenn Onopa, Penn State Extension Food, Families, and Health educator or Holly Thorpe, Penn State Extension Master Gardener Coordinator at 610-690-7662.
