About this week's guest on the Vegetable Gardening Show, Gary Oppenheimer

#288: How You Can Donate Your Excess Home Vegetable Garden Harvest Through AmpleHarvest.org Gary Oppenheimer is our Executive Director and Founder. A self described aging geek, he has worked with computers and communications going back to the 1970’s. As director of a community garden in 2009, he learned about the wasted food in many plots and created a program called “Ample Harvest” to get the excess food to local food pantries.

Realizing this as a nationwide problem, he created a nationwide solution called AmpleHarvest.org to use the Internet educate, encourage and enable millions of growers nationwide to share their ample harvest with local food pantries in all 50 states.
