Tomatoes Shared in Friendship

Picture5

The Love Your Food mantra is Eat. Share. Compost the Rest. Over the course of the Love Your Food campaign, sharing food brought together our community in large and small ways, all meaningful. This summer brought a welcome return to Grow Lincoln Park community garden in New Rochelle where Love Your Food team member Beth Radow, along with dozens of other local farmers, planted and harvested produce during the growing season. Beth planted a variety of beans and carrots along with seven varieties of tomato. The tomato plants flourished making it possible for Beth to share the abundant crop with local friends, her family physician, fellow local board members, the superintendent of the family‘s residence and their car mechanics. In return, Beth received photographs of the tomatoes as part of family meals and notes of gratitude for the “delicious gems” —“tasting the way tomatoes are supposed to taste.” These small gestures of friendship brought home that the Love Your Food mantra of Eat. Share. Compost the Rest is what community is all about.
