2013 sees the Napanee Food Bank Garden garden move from its previous spot to a new spot, right beside the old spot. Spot on!
Easy access from the road with grass to park on for volunteers who can come once a week to tend their assigned rows.
The area was an agricultural field in the past. It was tilled up a few days before April 24 and volunteers stepped up shortly afterward to start picking rocks. The new garden is smaller than in years past, approx 60’x60′.
Planting first occurred on Monday May 13th, 2013 this year.
Reports have come in that the soil is in better shape than expected, and better than the soil in the old location.

Onions..Dutch sets and Spanish (candy)
Cabbage..Artost and Tiara
Squash..Butternut 900 and Autumn cup
