Basin’s Backyard Garden – the final donation of tomatoes.

The very last donation of the season of Basin’s Backyard Garden produce was delivered Oct. 7.

Garden volunteers Tracie Bettenhausen, Karen Will and Lindsey DeKrey took the 37 pounds of tomatoes to the Bismarck Emergency Food Pantry. This marked the third donation from the garden to the food pantry.

Local news organizations covered the story! KFYR-TV and KX News ran stories (see the KX News story below), and Bismarck Tribune photographer Mike McCleary ran a photo as well.

Gail Leary with the food pantry was interviewed about the need they’re facing as the population grows.
