After freezing temperatures in Corrales, Seed2Need organizers are seeking help wrapping up this year’s gardens. During the Saturday, November 6 clean-up day, a variety of tasks are required: pulling up plants, stacking tomato cages and generally cleaning up the garden sites. Work will start at 9 a.m. on the lot just east of 176 Manierre Road.
“Our 2021 harvest total was 85,626 pounds,” Seed2Need’s David Butler reported. “Our total harvest since 2010 is 695,716 pounds” which has gone to area food banks and other institutions feeding those in need.

Seed2Need has been an independent, grassroots effort, growing food for the poor from gardens in Corrales since 2008. The gardens have grown from a 40 square foot plot in an abandoned corral.
Penny Davis, who started the project, tended the 2009 garden with help from Master Gardeners Judy Jacobs, Nella Sanchez-Cook, Lozen Snyder and Annaclaire Hunter.
