It's getting to be harvest time, and if you're not sure how to cook up all the delicious treats you've worked so hard to grow in your garden, come see how the pros do it! Watch and participate as David cooks up a dish using ingredients from the garden. Promises to be an educational and delicious workshop :)

Family Day

We want to get the kids learning about growing a garden! Bring the whole family on Sunday for a visit to the new demonstration public produce and community garden at McDonald Park - there will be craft booths, face painting, veggies for snacking, and workshops for the kids about dirt, bugs, and seeds. 
** We are still looking for volunteers to help out with this event - please email us if you are willing to help out, even for a little bit! Thanks!
