Mira...Fruit Harvesting in Alamo, Walnut Creek, Danville, San Ramon

In my fruit harvesting and gardening adventures, I have met so many generous neighbors, even friends miles away. While browsing the seed display and chatting about gardening, at Whole Foods Market in Walnut Creek, I met Mira Goetsch.

Mira was searching for Organic Broccoli and Radicchio seeds, while I began to rattle on about growing gardens for the hungry. Half an hour later, Mira, with a generous spirit and glowing kindness, was inspired to also help those less fortunate. A few miles between us, she living in Alamo, and I in Clayton, didn't hinder our ability to share ideas and coordinate to help the greater hunger cause. Rather, it is wonderful that Mira lives a few towns away! She is willing to pick up produce from her neighbors and outreach in Southern Walnut Creek, Alamo, Danville, San Ramon. Hunger doesn't end with the season, nor is there some invisible border where it doesn't exist. No matter how large or how small a community, there is a need to share with others!

Mira has created a beautiful flyer and sent to many of her own personal contacts. Mira has also delivered dozens of seedlings for donation to the Children's Community Garden of Concord, and other gardens nearby. A giant hug to Mira and a great appreciation for her enthusiasm in spreading the word that Summer's Harvest is welcome at local food pantries.

If you live in Mira's area, please contact her with fresh produce donations. She will be glad to deliver to local food pantries in Contra Costa County.

You can contact Mira by telephone: (925) 216-1145,
