How has your week been going so far? Ours has been great! We started our week off with a staff meeting to discuss what us staff members can do to make Community Garden Connections operate more efficiently and effectively, and most importantly, more engaging to the community. If you have any suggestions or comments, please feel free to email us at email@example.com 🙂
Tuesday we had a great day out at The Westmoreland Garden Project! We started off our Volunteer Garden Party at 4:00 pm with weeding, harvesting… and of course… SNACKS! In total, we harvested 112 pounds of food consisting of cucumbers, zucchini, cabbage, beans, broccoli, kale, lettuce mix, parsley, chives, chard, and celery. We washed up our harvest and our lovely staff member, Cynthia, took the food to New Dawn Farm to await its pick up and delivery to The Keene Community Kitchen. Thank you to our volunteers for helping out and giving people the gift of healthy produce! We and all of the community appreciate your efforts!
Our garden party ended a half hour early on Tuesday because we had an AWESOME Garden Pest Management Workshop hosted by the one and only Carl Majewski from the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension Program. We learned about diseases that happen in plants, garden bugs we want to keep, and garden bugs we need to get rid of. Fun Fact: The only ORGANIC way to get rid of squash bugs are to SQUASH them!
If you missed the workshop and would like to attend others, please give us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
