A Carrot Pickin’ Good Time

On a chill November morning a group of hearty volunteers including Erin Callaway coordinator of the YMCA’s Health Community Project and Andy VanEss from the Piscataquis Public Health Coalition joined UMaine Cooperative Extension’s Horticulturist, Katherine Garland to work at the Kousky Farm in Corinth on a carrot harvest.

They were invited to “get their hands dirty” and help harvest 2, 175 foot rows of carrots to be distributed at the Dover-Foxcroft Area Food Cupboard and the Milo Food Cupboard. They harvested roughly 50-60 lbs of carrots.  Happy Thanksgiving!
