Community Plot DonationsThe Community Plot

YCG is the largest community-garden contributor to the Maine Harvest for Hunger program. In 2015, we donated over 4,000 pounds of fresh organic vegetables to local residents. Recipients included Meals on Wheels; Yarmouth Food Pantry; Bartlett Circle; Yarmouth Falls Apartments; and occasionally Falmouth Food Pantry, which serves some Yarmouth clients; and a number of home-bound individuals.

The garden is planted, tended, and harvested by volunteers. If you'd like to dig in and join us, we'd love to have you; just call, and we'll put you to work!
