In addition to the regular kitchen garden on the grounds of the governor’s mansion here in Raleigh, Governor Bev Perdue has planted extra collard greens and cabbage as part of the Plant a Row for the Hungry national campaign.
Have you heard about this program? Plant a Row started in 1995 and encourages gardeners to plant an extra row of vegetables in their gardens and then donate the produce to local food agencies and soup kitchens. American gardeners have donated more than 14 million pounds of food as part of this grassroots effort. And it was all started by one guy. What a story!
That’s Life in Raleigh.
