Was this week beautiful or what?! How are you all? We had an event filled week, as per usual! A lot of our staff members are out of town this week so us CGCers had to pull our resources together and make magic happen out in the garden with our limited schedules…and beautiful things are happening!
This past Tuesday, at The Westmoreland Garden Project, we harvested 170.4 pounds of food (mostly in apple weight)! We were able to donate broccoli, kale, chard, peppers, beans, zucchini, cucumbers, apples, onions, squash, and tomatoes to the Keene Community Kitchen. A special thank you to our volunteers and staff members that allow for our Tuesday Garden Parties to run smoothly and efficiently. We couldn’t do it without your help! We usually have a harvest picture of our lovely volunteers and staff members, but this week was different! Instead, we have our awesome staff member, Cynthia, preforming a garden workout video! Check out our Facebook to watch it!
Our garden manager, Sara, left later on this week for vacation, leaving the rest of the CGC staff to come up with a plan to live up to her awesome garden legacy! Yesterday, our CGC staff member, Marisa, made it out to the Westmoreland Garden with one other volunteer, Nimabi, to harvest just about 30 pounds of food for the Chesterfield Food Pantry. What an awesome feeling to help others gain access to healthy food!
Are you looking to attend a soil compost workshop? Mark your calendars! On Tuesday, August 25, 2015 from 5:40-7:00 pm, we will be hosting a workshop open to the public at the Westmoreland Garden. This will be happening the same day as our Volunteer Garden Party! Come out earlier and enjoy some snacks and dirt! 😉 You do not want to miss out on this opportunity!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, gardeners!
