Open Garden harvest + Volunteers = Salsa
This summer the KLFS Open Gardens located behind the Adult Education and Training Centre and beside I.E. Weldon Secondary School provided our community 44 raised beds of free produce. A variety of fresh vegetables included: carrots, beets, green and yellow beans, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, kale, and cucumbers. Many visitors harvested what they needed when they needed it; that is the purpose of the garden.
Back in August, KLFS volunteers harvested the ingredients that were needed, purchased a few more, and made pico de gallo salsa. The salsa will be distributed to our member foodbanks to provide to those who sometimes do not have enough.
Salsa can be used in many different ways and there are some suggestions on each jar. This fresh, homemade salsa is a wonderful, healthy addition to a meal as it does not have any preservatives, sugar or salt.
KFLS is extremely proud of our very first batch of salsa. It is our goal next season to make more from our gardens!
Thank you to the Lindsay Salvation Army for the use of your kitchen. And thank you to our volunteers who made the salsa! We hope those who receive it enjoy it!
