Successful Cole Crop Distribution

Despite the chilly weather, Topeka Common Ground and Shawnee County Extension Master Gardeners gave away 182 broccoli plants; 210 cabbage seedlings; 142 kale and 142 Swiss Chard plants to 17 community gardens in Shawnee County.  A huge thank you to Master Gardener Ed Dillingham for growing, hauling, setting up and helping distribute the seedlings.  Also, a thank you goes to Judi Salyer and Diana Hershberger for their help in distributing the seedlings to the gardens. We are hoping to increase the amount of food donated to food pantries this year by increasing the number of seedlings we distribute.
