Know Your Farmer: Supporting Community Agriculture (Pennington, NJ; Bedford Hills, NY; and Ranger, GA) (#707H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

If you've ever grown a vegetable garden, chances are you had more of something than you could use. That was the basis for how AmpleHarvest. org was formed. Founder Gary Oppenheimer noted his community garden was producing far more than the gardeners could consume, or even give to their friends and neighbors. So he decided to find a way to get that fresh produce in the hands of neighbors in need. That idea grew into a national non-profit network he founded. The premise was to make it possible for anyone to donate, or have access to fresh produce, wherever they lived-all from the surplus from our own garden's bounty. Today, AmpleHarvest.org has been recognized by the White House and major companies and organizations for the important work they do. In this episode, Joe meets founder Gary Oppenheimer and learns how we can all share some of our "ample harvest" with our own neighbors in need.
