This afternoon during my visit with the Harrisburg Urban Growers - HUG I learned a lot. But one thing that especially stood out is this: the life expectancy in Harrisburg City is 15 years shorter than the rest of Dauphin County. That was before COVID-19 came to town. Their struggles have been compounded by one thing after the next.

There’s a key component that’s missing for urban communities, and that’s access to fresh and nutritious food. The corner stores they rely on do not have it. Systemic discrimination has created a food apartheid, depriving low income communities — whose residents are predominantly black and people of color — of fresh, nutritious food, and repeating a cycle that limits their access to economic opportunities and better health.

The 15 urban gardens in Harrisburg provide local families access to tools, space, and mentorship to plant their own garden and experience the freedom of growing their own food. This work is valuable. Urban communities rely on groups like HUG. Urban gardens feed communities in need, breaking down walls that block opportunity and bringing communities together.

I’m going home with a long list of follow-up from today’s visit, and looking forward to our next meeting. Thank you to the HUG volunteers and gardeners for your time, your honesty, and your commitment to community.

Watch your seeds

UPDATED to reflect new reporting instructions! https://agr.wa.gov/about-wsda/news-and-media-relations/news-releases?article=31411

Today we received reports of people receiving seeds in the mail from China that they did not order. The seeds are sent in packages usually stating that the contents are jewelry. Unsolicited seeds could be invasive, introduce diseases to local plants, or be harmful to livestock.

Here's what to do if you receive unsolicited seeds from another country:

1) DO NOT plant them and if they are in sealed packaging (as in the photo below) don't open the sealed package.

2) This is known as agricultural smuggling. Report it to USDA. Information in our latest press release on how to report: https://agr.wa.gov/about-wsda/news-and-media-relations/news-releases?article=31411
