It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like… SPRING!

Greetings everyone!

The Garden is prepping for another beautiful and bountiful spring season. Last week, the Garden Leadership Team traveled to Red Hill Farm just 20 minutes away from UVA to plant our starters in their greenhouse. We started broccoli rabe, bell peppers, dinosaur kale, and eggplant, so gardeners, GET READY for some AWESOME gardening work days 🙂 Below is a picture of Richard Harrison; he and his wife Wendy are the owners of the Farm at Red Hill. He was kind enough to give us a tour of the greenhouse. They grow produce all year round; ginger makes up a large portion of their output. In addition, the Harrisons offer a line of fresh salsas, hummus, pesto, dips and habenero jams. They sell them in multiple locations in Charlottesville (I see them at the Barracks Kroger all the time). If you ever have a chance, try them out! Black bean salsa is one of the team’s favorites.

We are excited to pick up gardening this spring. Look out for emails about work days and our annual BIG SPRING THING!

Peace, love, and sunshine,

The Garden Leadership Team
