Thank you!


Thank you so much to everyone who participated in Planting for a Purpose this year! These local gardeners' generosity with their time, resources and produce gave more Brown County community members access to the fruits and vegetables needed to lead a healthy life. Numbers are still coming in, but as of today, pantries and donors have reported 11,092 pounds of fresh produce donated in 2018, up from 7,690 pounds at this time last year. That's amazing! We will share a final update early next year.

Thanks again from all of us from the Green Bay Packers and Brown County UW-Extension. Keep an eye out for 2019 signup. All local gardeners are encouraged to participate and help the impact grow!
