Happy Friday!!! Hope you all had a wonderful week! Community Garden Connections started the week off with a productive and informative staff meeting. We have lots of exciting events planned out for folks for the remainder of August and the start of September. Our Harvest Festival is in the making! Stay tuned for more updates in the future!
We think the best way to start off the weekend is with a DELICIOUS recipe… get your cutting boards ready for this Tomato Cucumber Salad.
-3 whole tomatoes, or handful of cherry tomatoes
-2 cucumbers, skinned
-2 Tbsp olive oil
-1/2 red onion
-2 pinches sea salt
-2 pinches dried oregano
- Slice tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions
- Put in a bowl
- Add remaining ingredients, mix, and enjoy!
If you want to spruce things up we recommend adding corn, asparagus, artichoke, and even bell peppers! A perfect and easy recipe for summer!
Westmoreland Harvest Updates:
Before we start getting into our harvest updates, we want to extend our biggest thanks to our volunteers and staff members that help out every single Tuesday. They make our time in the garden motivating and memorable. Not only do we have fun harvesting food for those in need, but are always enjoying the presence of one another! If you are interested in volunteering with our program, do not hesitate to come out with us on Tuesdays! We look forward to seeing you.
This week we harvested a total of 150.3 pounds of food. This consisted of beans, lettuce mix, kale, chard, peppers, parsley, celery, basil, zucchini, broccoli, cucumbers, cabbage, and tomatoes! Of course, all of this delicious food was donated to the Keene Community Kitchen! We are so happy to be involved in this program!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!!
