Produce often goes to waste at a community garden
Just like any other garden, community gardens often produce bumper crops, much of which can go to waste. Instead of going to the kitchen tables of local hungry, the food must be disposed of.
Solution: Host a farmer's market as an outlet for excess
The Winnemucca Community Garden decided to host a regular farmer's market to serve as an outlet for excess produce. Any community members can sell what they grow at the weekly market, along with other members of the community with overflowing gardens.
