PAR Pledge Card

This pledge is not a binding commitment. We're simply asking you to estimate what type of fresh produce [fruits, vegetables & herbs] you believe you will be able to donate during the season. It doesn't take a lot to make a real contribution! The average harvest from a typical packet of seeds of a light vegetable, such as snap beans, weighs about 20 pounds. Dense vegetables such as carrots, produce about 100 pounds. The average large, solid tomato weighs a pound or so. Two or three medium apples weigh a pound. Please, pledge your help by printing off and returning the following form.

We ask that you take a few moments to make a commitment to add your gift to the PLANT A ROW year-end totals. Please print this form, fill it out, and either give it to a PAR representative, FAX to 815-987-7881 or send it to the University of Illinois Extension at the following address: University of Illinois Extension, Winnebago County Unit, 4311 West State Street, Rockford, Illinois 61102-1339
