Food Matters kicks off the growing season at the community garden

he Paramount Theatre is showing a different kind of movie these days — green ones.
On Saturday, Food Matters helped kick off the growing season at Ruth & Naomi’s Community Garden by hosting a plant sale event. The raised beds are ready for the season.
People lined up for one of 75 goodie garden bags loaded with seeds and seed potatoes. Garden experts Jack Kouwenhoven and Brian Minter were on hand to give interesting demonstrations and offer advice to the local green thumbs.
Funds raised at the sale will go to pay for the insurance cost of the 2015 gleaning season.
Gleaners go into a field after the machines have harvested, such as with corn and berries, and clean off any left behind.
