New shed details: we are working with the university as well as the town to establish whether we need a permit for the new shed. We hope that this will not impede the process and I will keep you updated. For now, your current shed will stay intact until further notice.

This Week

Monday: i harvested almost 50 pounds of swiss chard and there is still more to cut in two weeks. I did not get to cut back oak tree and cherry tree quite yet but will soon.

Friday: please turn the compost to the best of your ability.

Next Week

Special thanks from Marie Weimer; social work intern

As the garden beds are less active after November 2nd there’s still much happening to prepare for the upcoming season. Anyone interested in lending a helping hand or sharing your experiences from this past year please email me at s0874232@gmail.Com. All shared stories and efforts will help support the garden’s mission and vision!
