Summertime is a busy time here in MoGreena. The grease is flowing at the shore and everywhere else. Our staff continues to be dedicated to high quality customer service and recycling used cooking oil into domestically used locally sourced biofuels.
Plus the MoGreena Garden Project is in full swing. So far, we have donated approximately 100 pounds of produce to City Gate in Coatesville, PA. But there will be much, much more. The gardens are amazing this year.
We are once again working with the Coatesville Youth Initiative and have four young men on site for a portion of the summer: Tyree Warner, Casey Hammond, Noah Willet, and Marquinn Parker. They have tended to the gardens in the heat and have already learned quite a bit during their first couple of weeks on site. This year, we have added some fun learning experiences for them. Visiting chefs from local restaurant are coming out weekly to do cooking demonstrations and prepare lunch for the students, using ingredients from our gardens. So far, we have had the pleasure of Kevin Coley from High Street Caffe who prepared Gazpacho, BBQ chicken tacos, and chocolate mousse with freshly made whipped cream.
This week, Talulas Table in Kennett Square was kind enough to prepare boxed lunches after a delivery of produce from us the day before. Collard green BLT’s were on the menu, along with beet salad and homemade cookies. There are many more to come. By the end of the season, the students will know how to grow and prepare their own food and will likely move on with expanded palates.
Finally, we have a new truck and she will be on the road soon. Meet Hannah…named after our friend and long time supporter Hannah Johnston. Expect an official birth announcement from co-founder Rob Mastrippolito soon!
