EUGENE, Ore. — Spring time is a signal for people to get back into their gardens, so Food For Lane County held its Spring Plant Sale to raise money for its gardens program.
The sale included hundreds of organically grown vegetables, flowers, and herbs.
All the proceeds of the sale go to the organization’s garden program which grows organic produce for the food bank.
Food For Lane County says the sale promotes a healthier lifestyle of better eating and more sustainable living.
“We’re getting some beautiful plants out to people and encouraging them to grow them in their yards and gardens and share them with their communities as well. So I feel like we’re providing food security with this sale too,” said Food For Lane County employee Jen Anonia.
Staff say their garden program grows over 190,000 pounds of produce a year.
