Produce Swap

All gardeners want a bountiful harvest; however, what if you are suffocating in pumpkins and drowning in lettuce, yet, you still need tomatoes or garlic and have no space or idea how to grow them? Moving surplus produce from one side of your kitchen to another is a blessing and a nuisance, compounded by knowing that even with such a plentiful garden, you will still have to go to the grocery store to buy produce. This very predicament is why the Deer Park Library has its Swap Produce event Friday through Sunday, August 3rd-26th.  

To participate in this event no sign up is required,  just a table with a sign on it telling people to leave their extra produce, and in return pick up anything someone else has left to share.  Come on down Friday and Saturday between 10:00am and 6:00pm, August:

  • 3rd – 4th
  • 10th – 11th
  • 17th – 18th
  • 24th – 25th

Or Sunday between 1:00pm – 5:00pm, August

  • 5th
  • 12th
  • 19th
  • 26th

However, anytime the tables are set up and there is produce available, you are welcome to pick up any produce. In addition, the organizers do not want the produce to go to waste and if needed, produce will be donated to a local food bank.  

So stop by the Deer Park Library at 208 S. Forest Ave. and check out this event all August long.

Letter To The Editor – Show Me The Money

Most people in Deer Park want a local police force but their biggest concern is cost. I agree. I don’t want to raise taxes or break the bank for a local department. And although many people say there have been studies done on the cost of starting a police force, the city has no record of any studies ever done. And for all the people who have said they have run the numbers, no one has ever shown me any of their numbers.
