It’s Harvest Time in Maine – and at Dirigo Pines our gardens are producing quite the haul this year! Brussels sprouts, tomatoes and cabbage – oh my!
Just behind the Dirigo Pines Inn are a series of raised beds that residents claim each spring. Stunning flowers and gorgeous fruits and veggies sprout and produce all summer long, and this time of year the harvest is plentiful.
Many days residents can find vegetables available at the Inn in exchange for a donation to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s – a favorite charity among Dirigo residents. And what veggies residents can’t use are donated to local food pantries and Habitat for Humanity to help the greater community. Happy harvesting!
