Cover, Increasing Fresh Produce Availability From Local Sources

This publication is available in PDF format only.

In 2012, several partners came together for a unified mission, “to both educate and provide locally grown fresh produce” to citizens of the Eastern Shore of Virginia (Fig. 1). The best way to fight hunger and provide locally sourced fresh vegetables is to demonstrate proper production practices and teach citizens where they can find information that they need to be successful in their gardens.
