gardening & gleaning

Join us in growing & gleaning local food for food pantries, homeless shelter kitchens, & La Soupe!

Each of our Yoga-Interns volunteers 100 hours in beginning / maintaining community gardens and in gleaning produce from local farms.  Friends are welcome to join us too!

Gleaning is a very old concept . . . going back to biblical days when farmers were encouraged to let the poor take what they could find on farms once the farmer had picked the choicest crops for sale.  It is the concept that we all share this earth together and can eat together.  Sue Plummer organizes gleaning for Southwest Ohio through the Society of St. Andrew, a full-time position that VITALITY co-founder Mike Eck began.  Sue has over 12 years of experience with urban-gardening — she is excellent at helping people learn how to grow their own healthy, local food through her vast experience in Walnut Hills gardens.  Sue ran VITALITY’s Glean & Share Garden from 2019-2020.

Here’s an interview with our Walnut Hills friend Gary Dangel.  Gary has worked with many of our 125+ Yoga-Interns over the years and is much loved by them for his wisdom and community spirit!
