Thank you to Pret A Manger staff and Green City Force, WHEDco’s partners, who volunteered on WHEDco’s Rooftop Urban Farm in October. The volunteers worked tirelessly clearing plots for winter, harvesting fresh herbs and vegetables

including, sage, dill, mint, basil, parsley, rosemary, chives, green peppers, scallions, carrots, and beets, and adding over 100 pounds of garden scraps to compost. The fresh herbs and vegetables were distributed to over a dozen apartments at Intervale Green.

In addition, thank you to Green City Force for volunteering at WHEDco’s greenhouse at Intervale Green, as they planted spinach seeds for winter and harvested collard greens that were distributed to residents.

A great dig!
