On Saturday, January 21, we had an amazing work/play/gather day! Community gardeners, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, some Rotarians and garden friends all turned out to help! We are so grateful! The weather was beautiful, the mood cheerful, and so much got done, as you will see in the photos to follow.
We built five new garden plots, which were immediately turned over to eager gardeners ( we will build more plots as soon as we can to accommodate those on the waiting list).
Girl Scouts working on building a new plot
Some members of the Boy Scouts and their scoutmaster fixed up our donated large picnic table!
The Girl Scouts were a big part of the picking and gathering of fresh beautiful veggies such as broccoli, cabbage, spinach, lettuce and others,for donation! Mainly from the donation row crops and the Girl Scouts “slice” of the mandala garden, and also from individual gardeners. Thank you to all who donated!
As of a few days ago, we have donated a total of 106 lbs. of food!!! We are excited about being part of this great community in this way!
