    Hello to everyone who donated to the Carrots By Cycle Fundraiser in May, 2018.  Now that it's harvest time, I will be riding my bike today, September 24th to visit the school and community gardens to pull and weigh the carrots prior to donating them to Father Bills in Quincy and Wellspring in Hull.  Please consider making a donation to help us reach the goal of raising $5,000 to support this important teen community service program that runs from March through December each year. 

    Thank you very much!

Campaign Details

Help support the “Farm to Food Pantry” program at Holly Hill Farm that works with teens across the South Shore to grow, harvest and deliver fresh produce to Wellspring in Hull, Father Bill's in Quincy, as well as food pantries in other South Shore Towns. “Carrots By Cycle” is a two-part event:  part 1 was on May 31st when Jon Belber set out on his bicycle to plant carrot seeds at 12 school and community gardens in Boston, Milton, Quincy, Braintree, Weymouth, Hingham, Hull, Cohasset and Scituate. On Monday September 24th, Jon plans to ride his bike to harvest the carrots and donate them to local food pantries and shelters, including Father Bill's and Mainspring in Quincy and Wellspring Multiservice Center in Hull.  Both of these day-long bike rides were designed to raise awareness about the need for fresh, organic produce for food pantry clients at local area community kitchens and food pantries.
