Energizing our lives with a variety of delicious wholesome foods.
Share Your Bounty is back again this year at CCPRD Movies in the Park in Stryker Park every Friday through August from 6-8 pm or until the produce is gone! Stay afterwards and enjoy a free movie on the outside big screen. (Note: August 9th will not have a movie as we will all be at the Fair!)
What is Share Your Bounty?? Share Your Bounty is a community exchange of bounty from local gardens. This is a great way to reduce food waste from your garden and share it with others in the community. Any gardener can bring clean fresh excess produce from their garden to share with others and even take home a different vegetable that didn’t produce well for you. That’s right…anyone an take advantage of this opportunity to try fresh locally grown produce – for free!
If you have excess produce, you can also share with the following locations: Soroptimist Senior Center from Mon-Thurs from 8am to 2pm; St Vincent de Paul from Mon-Thurs at 8am to noon; Craig’s Compassionate Cafe from Mon-Wed 9am to noon; and the First Baptist Church on the last two Mondays of the month at 11:30 am. So be sure to plant an extra row in your garden and join the “Share Your Bounty” effort!
The Mother’s Day Weekend Community Garden Family Day was May 11th at the Prineville Presbyterian Church. There was free veggie starts, gardening tips and educational booths, and fun for the kids with Storytime in the Garden, Yoga, an Obstacle Course and Rock Painting. (Okay…truthfully, adults liked these too!) Lots of information was shared to help you grow your own fresh produce and learn about our local community gardens. It was a great way to spend the day with Mom and the whole family!
These efforts were made possible by a grant from Oregon Food Bank’s F.E.A.S.T program along with collaborations from several of our partnering organizations.
Eating more fresh fruits and vegetables is an important element in improving you health, and its easy! Our group has farmers, gardeners, and people who love cooking. And who doesn’t love sharing meals with family and friends? Enjoy some of our favorite recipes we’ve specially selected just for you on Our Favorite Recipes Page.
