Katie’s Krops….Growing for the Greater Good!

The idea behind Katie’s Krops began with a 9 year old girl and a 40 pound cabbage.  In 2008 Katie brought home a tiny cabbage seedling home from school as part of the Bonnie Plants 3rd Grade Cabbage Program.  She tended to her cabbage and cared for it until it grew to an amazing 40 pounds. Knowing her cabbage was special she donated to a soup kitchen where it helped to feed over 275 people.  Moved by the experience of seeing how many people could benefit from the donation of fresh produce to soup kitchens, Katie decided to start vegetable gardens and donate the harvest to help feed people in need.

Katie now has numerous gardens and has donated thousands of pounds of fresh produce to organizations that help people in need.  The mission of Katie’s Krops is to start and maintain vegetable gardens of all sizes and donate the harvest to help feed people in need, as well as to assist and inspire others to do the same. The problem of hunger is real, Katie’s Krops mission is simple, we all can help because…

Dutch Heritage Gardens and Mojo had the opportunity to provide and build a greenhouse so Katie can grow produce year round. Historically, Katie hasn’t been able to keep her program running during the cold months, but now she can help the needy by continuing to donate produce throughout the year. This gallery of photos provides highlights from Dutch Heritage Garden’s trip to set up the greenhouse.
