    Volunteered at the Food Bank of Larimer County  with Vinci and Jeff. We packed Chipotle peppers for 2 hours and didn't even cry! If anyone is interested in volunteering with YEN in the future, we have a standing appointment with the Food Bank on the 3rd Monday of every month. Ask  Julia Gross for more details.

      What a wonderful picture!!  

      My daughter went to Cornell for a year and they had an apple vending machine in the basement of their Horticulture building with several different varieties of apples.  Cheers to NY state and their apples!
