One phenomenal success of the Land Trust’s Community Garden is the tons of fresh produce that we, along with our partner Midcoast Hunger Prevention Program (MCHPP), are able to produce through our Common Good Garden. The Common Good Garden is run by a dedicated group of volunteer gardeners who show up with a passion for feeding the community.
In the first four seasons, the Common Good Garden produced over 9,420 pounds of fresh produce for the clients of MCHPP!! Each year more than 100 volunteers dedicate over 400 hours to making this harvest possible.
In 2021 the Common Good Garden grew and donated over 3,000 pounds of produce including carrots, tomatoes, broccoli, beans, lettuce, melons, tomatoes, onions, leeks, and winter squash, to MCHPP. This incredible harvest is made possible by the hard work of volunteers and important member support.
