CARROTS BY CYCLE BENEFIT: Help support Farm to Food Pantry coordinator Jon Belber as he sets off on his bicycle to plant carrot seeds on May 31. This part 1 phase will begin at a garden in Boston, then head to gardens in Quincy, Braintree, Weymouth, Hingham, Hull, Scituate and end at Holly Hill Farm in Cohasset. The day-long bike riding and planting is to raise awareness about the need for fresh, organic produce for food pantry clients at local, area community kitchens and food pantries. Part 2 will occur in the late summer when he plans to bike and harvest the carrots. Please make a donation to support this program that works with teens across the South Shore to grow, harvest and deliver fresh produce to Wellspring, Father Bill’s and food pantries in these towns. Additional riders welcome. To make a donation, visit HollyHillFarm.org or email email@example.com.
