Garden of Hope

Emily volunteered to water Tuesday and Thursday this week!  On Saturday, Jen, Nate, John, Teddi, Nicholas, Anne, Ted, Doris and Dave tied up tomatoes, picked and packed kale, zucchini, peppers, and tomatoes.  The weather was glorious and welcome relief from the heat.  Ted and Anne delivered 165.5 pounds to Rock Spring Congregational Church on Saturday.  Our poundage for the season is now up to 1578.8 pounds!

After four years of service to the garden, we are saying goodbye to one our great garden volunteers, Nate, as he ventures off to begin his college studies Sunday…Thanks, Nate for all the help over the last four years!

Our next work day is scheduled this Saturday, August 20th, starting at 9:00am (our alternate rain date is August 21st at 11:00).  We will harvest more, weed and tie up peppers and tomatoes!

We request that you sign up in advance.   All opportunities for sign-up are outlined on the signup web page.  We look forward to seeing you here!
