Leadership Spotlight Series

Harvest Pierce County supports 82 community gardens representing over 15 acres of land, the majority of which use Tagro products to grow food for family, friends and food banks.  Between the Farm program and the Garden program – 67,000 pounds of food was grown for donation to school cafeterias and food banks.  That’s not counting all the food from the gleaning program harvested from fruit trees and farms. This is the kind of work that Kristen McIvor, Urban Agriculture and Local Access Program Director, gets to be a part of at Harvest Pierce County.
