Pioneer Garden, volunteers feed hungry

The University of Illinois Master Gardeners, who plant and maintain the demonstration pioneer garden at the McHenry County HIstorical Museum in Union, donated nearly 75 pounds of food to Crystal Lake Food Pantry this season. Produce included: green beans, potatoes, beets, carrots, cabbage, rhubarb, kale, onions, basil and oregano. Special thanks to our dedicated green-thumbed volunteers: Cheryl LaSarre-Gaddis, Sue Keller, Barb Donnelly, Susan Langworthy, Christina Rank, Jennifer Knox, Kathy Render and Ron Peterson.
