Harvesting Hope

Community garden’s first harvest goes to food bank

Payson’s Community Garden turned out its first batch of crops this season Tuesday, providing needed fresh produce to local food banks. Organizers say the inaugural garden has sprouted nicely, fulfilling its mission to help feed the hungry and bring the community together.

It had been years since Lois Grumbo says she had seen her daughter-in-law, much less met her two grandchildren.
