Lots of greens in 2019! We harvested almost 3 lbs of mostly greens (parsley, kale, arugula, spinach, mustard) as well as a few radishes right at the end of the holidays. A few bags were sent home with the families who helped harvest but the majority will go to the Catholic Charities Food Pantry. At the end of the year, we had a successful farm and garden produce sale and plan to do at least 2 more in the spring.
Growing indoors and out: High school and middle school students will be starting some of our annual flowers and vegetables for a spring season in the science lab. Additionally they will be harvesting worm castings from the worm bin which has been living in the science lab during the winter. Which is good because our garlic is popping up in the front beds and the soil could use some improvements.
Family Service Day: We will be having a family service day on January 19th from 1-3 pm. No special tools or skills required to volunteer! We have a bunch of leaves we will be shredding and adding to compost. There are always things to plant, prune, and maintain.
