Thanks to Edy's Ice Cream, our local food pantry (CHOW) has won an orchard. We ended up #1 in the voting.
The best part is....your community can do this, too, through this contest.
CHOW was going to purchase an orchard anyway, on land where houses used to stand until our 2006 floods. Now they don't have to spend money on it, leaving other uses for the money.
Now CHOW's clients (in a few years anyway) will be able to enjoy fresh fruit.
Time for a ray of sunshine here in the cloudy Triple Cities.
