Thousands of organic food plants going to new homes!

On Tuesday, Our Kitchen Table is distributing thousands of organic food starter plants to urban gardeners in its residential food growing program. OKT will also make plants available to select community gardens as well as to the Grand Rapids Public Schools’ gardens that are working with the OKT Food Diversity Project.

Farmer Michael VanderBrug oversaw seed selection, planting and growing at the Blandford Farm greenhouse. OKT has also engaged two youth interns to help with plant distribution and as helpers at the Southeast Area Farmers’ Market:  Zoe VanderBrug, a junior at Grand Rapids Christian High School, and Chamberlain Mathis, a University of Michigan freshman. Chamberlain and Zoe will also be sharing OKT and farmers’ market updates via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
