Too many cucumbers!
Thought I'd reply publicly to the question below in case anyone else has a similar question:
Members of this list are welcome to use it to connect with each other to give away or trade food. If there's anything on Saturday morning that hasn't found a home, I'd encourage you to donate it to the Tahlequah Community Garden. What we aren't able to sell is donated to local charities that need food. (CARE Food Pantry, Project O Si Yo, or Help in Crisis).
As a nonprofit organization (a mission supported by First Lutheran Church) Tahlequah Community Garden is allowed to accept locally grown food donations & sell them at the Tahlequah Farmer's Market. This seems to be working well for folks who have an overabundance of a few things, but don't want to take the time to be sellers at the market.
Funds raised through sales from the Tahlequah Community Garden & donations will be used to start a second community garden in a different neighborhood. Net profits beyond that will be donated to CARE Food Pantry & Mary's Blue Plate Restaurant (a no-fee restaurant being developed by Project O Si Yo.)
