On Saturday, September 18th, seventeen volunteers harvested 183.5 lbs of squash, peppers, tomatoes, and pumpkins. Volunteers joined us from the parish, Marymount University, Junior League of Northern Virgina, Friends of Urban Agriculture and others, and included Jen, Nate, Bas, Susanna, Ella, Lauren, Caroline, Sofia, Lauren, Felicia, Shelby, Katy, Alex, Sade, Steve, Dave, and Doris . The produce was delivered to Rock Spring Congregational Church on Monday for further distribution to the food banks. As the season winds down, the butternut squash has weaved its way through the garden. We are looking forward to a large fall harvest of squash.
To date, the garden has produced for donation, 2,933.5 lbs of fresh organic vegetables for local food banks.
