Seed2Need is a non-profit organization dedicated to growing produce for local food pantries and soup kitchens in Bernalillo and Sandoval counties.
There are three gardens and an orchard. All are located in Corrales on land donated by local property owners. Crops include tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelons, cantaloupe, green chile, green beans, squash, cabbage and broccoli. In total we have approximately 2-acres, with 140 trees. The orchard includes several varieties of apple, peach, pear, plum, and cherry.
The harvest at the gardens typically begins in late July. However, peak harvest is typically late August or early September depending on weather and rain. When we don’t have a late frost, September is the peak for gleaning as well.
