Fall into the Vegetable Garden!

Standard

Hey all!

It’s good to be back in the garden! A fresh start with beautiful produce and the garden is looking better than ever! I cannot thank the volunteers we have had enough, this past weekend the MasonGives volunteers were so generous giving us a Saturday and seriously giving the garden an amazing make-over! We recently dug up all of our potatoes and also have an okra, pumpkins, watermelon, hot peppers, tomatoes, asparagus, strawberries, fruit trees, and herbs growing. If you have the chance please stop by and check out our work. As always, we are also looking for volunteers; this is not a long-term committment. Come for 5 minutes or 4 times a week! We just love having people out there with us. We are also starting to plant our fall harvest and planning a harvest party for 10-10-10. I will keep you posted once we determine when/where our first meeting will be. Questions? Email Amanda at awall@gmu.edu

Fall 2010 Garden Work Schedule:

Also as a side note I would like to mention that we recently sold 15 pounds of basil and 1.5 pounds of peppers to Southside dining hall on campus. This is a huge step in ensuring that students are eating local and healthier food!
