Weighing Produce Donations


We make weekly produce donations to a city-owned subsidized housing apartment complex across the street from our community garden. We weigh our produce using a fishing scale with a hook-- we can hook plastic bags full of produce, or large flexible plastic trugs loaded with produce, so we can track our weekly donations.

What other systems do gardens have for weighing their donated produce? Our system works, but is a little cumbersome.


It sounds like a great idea. I’m sorry I don’t have anything helpful to contribute. We don’t weigh our produce at this point in time, but we do have a kitchen scale.
