On Saturday (11/12), Jen, Susan, Doris, Dave, Anne and Ted along with Luke, Will, Dom, Daniel, Kevin, Matt, Tyler, Nick, Bryan, Andrew, Gavin, Tim, Sebastian, Jake, Patrick, and Creek – the Senior and sophomore members of Marymount Lacrosse Team stripped and removed the remaining squash and kale plants and irrigation from the garden. The team also spread 10 yards of leaf mold mulch across the garden along with compost from our onsite composters. We celebrated another successful season with grilled hamburgers, hot dogs and assorted salads… enjoyed by all!
On 11/13, Ted and Anne delivered 228 pounds of packaged kale and multiple large squashes to Food for Others in Fairfax, VA. The final tally for the St. Andrew’s Garden of Hope this season is 3,040 pounds — our second consecutive year to surpass 3,000 pounds!
We have closed the Garden of Hope for the 2022 season. Many thanks to all of our volunteers who made the garden wildly successful for yet another season! Hope to see you in at the garden in 2023!
