One Vegetable One Community (OVOC) strives to unite the community by encouraging gardeners to plant, grow, cook, and/or share a single vegetable. The aim is to see the vegetable of the year growing in kitchen gardens, community and school gardens, containers on front porches, in front of businesses, faith-based organizations, and government buildings. Through sharing growing, preparation, cooking, and storing information, OVOC starts a conversation in the community about food, nutrition and how Crow Wing County can support healthier choices.
Vote for next year’s featured One Vegetable, One Community on the 2020 veggie ballot. Return your official ballot to Essentia Health – St. Joseph’s Medical Center hospital front lobby desk or Crow Wing County Community Health central reception counter by August 15, 2019.
