Oxford County Master Gardener Volunteers plan, plant, maintain, and harvest two 3/4 acres gardens located in Rumford and South Paris, Maine. All of the harvest is donated to people with limited access to fresh produce via the Maine Harvest for Hunger program. Last year, over 5,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables were harvested from the two gardens.
