Backyard Gardener: Maine Harvest for Hunger


BANGOR - If you've been growing a garden this summer, you know that now, all that hard work is starting to pay off.  But maybe you have more yield than you know what to do with? Our Erin Thomas brings us the latest "Backyard Gardener."

Like yours at home, our garden is now giving us produce. So this week we decided to take a look at where our vegetables will be going in the community.

Kate Garland showed us what Maine Harvest for Hunger is all about.

Green beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, and even cilantro were all ready to harvest, so we brought them to the Salvation Army in Bangor.
