It’s gardening season, baby!

Ahh, summer is here and all of our sites are knee deep in the dirt. Here are some photos from recent garden happenings around town.

ImageThe Building Bridges Club House kicked off the season earlier this month and planted a lot of tasty vegetables. They will be used to make pizzas and other snacks for their participants and their families. The young children at the Clubhouse will get to eat this fresh, garden food all summer long. Stay tuned for more photos.

The Keene Senior Center had a garden club every Friday. Seniors, staff, interns and CGC coordinators garden, soak in some sunshine and make new friends every week.

In May, the Harper Acres crew received some garden amendments. After a soil test, their beds were in need of some Potassium. In this photo, Betty and George are rejoicing over their amendments.
