Home gardener Catherine “Cathi” Banks has learned by trial and error how to get the most from the raised bed gardens that have lined her backyard in Murphy for the last six years.
In fact, Banks’ has not only had good luck with her gardening adventure, she generously shares her bounty with customers of 5 Loaves Food Pantry in Sachse on a regular basis.
The gardener is like the “Secret Santa” of produce. She leaves a box or a bag on the pantry porch, then takes a picture of it and texts it to Audrey Wallace, director of 5 Loaves.
