“Anyone wondering about the phrase food justice can see it in action here… SHARE offers deeply discounted food in two ways: There’s an online ordering service through which individuals and food pantries can submit orders monthly for just about anything – meat, poultry, fruit, canned goods, dairy, even frozen pizza and french fries.
Or, neighbors like Barton can stop by and purchase vegetables that SHARE grows on site in “high tunnels.”
The tunnels are made by staking huge flexible hoops in the soil and covering them with heavy-duty plastic that retains heat. Voila: It’s a passive solar greenhouse, no electricity needed.
High tunnels extend the growing season so that fall crops thrive and can be harvested into December, and frost-sensitive spring crops can be planted at least a month earlier – in March, instead of April or May.”
