Non-human Garden Beneficiaries!

While we have harvested lots of tomatoes, zucchinis, cabbages, peppers, and kale this summer and shared it with our campus community and partners, there are some non-human beneficiaries of the garden bounties as well. After taking his “Child-Animal Studies” students to the garden this past week for class, some of the students brought home extra kale to feed to their pets, including these guinea pigs owned by ABEC student Kylie McCloskey!

Harvest time comes to an end

October means that cold weather is coming and with it the garden’s chance to rest for the winter!

Partners of the East-West community garden will put the garden to bed on Friday, October 19, 5:00-7:00pm.

We will harvest whatever is left of the veggies, take stock of how the summer went, clean up the beds, eat some snacks, and talk about our hopes for next year!

(Is it too early to start planning on what seeds to buy?)
