Congratulations to the winners of the Terra Cura Plymouth Rotary Auction cedar planter, Vanessa Verkade and her husband Peter Baird. Vanessa chose an assorted of organic plants, a few of which were, tomatoes, basil, black hungarian and yellow peppers, rosemary and nasturtiums. The planter box is located right outside the door to their home and it will be a delicious resource in the months to come. Thank you for supporting the Plymouth Rotary and Terra Cura’s mission to teach people about growing organic food right outside their door.
PCN PACTIV stopped in to the Hedge Elementary School to learn more about Healthy Plymouth’s partnership with the non profit group Terra Cura and how they utilized the recently constructed garden beds throughout the community while allowing school children to see the growing process of tomatoes from seed to sauce. This is part of the “tomato sauce initiative.”, which entails students taking part in planting and growing tomatoes and eventually using them in a tomato sauce for a pasta dinner in September.

"DARTMOUTH - When it comes to getting good food to those who need it, "There really is no one size fits all solution," said Ellen Parker, executive director of Boston's Project Bread.
Parker represented the statewide anti-hunger organization at the SouthCoast Food Security Forum Wednesday evening at the UMass Dartmouth Charlton College of Business Learning Pavilion and Auditorium. Her keynote address was followed by local innovation presentations and a panel of local experts."
