Hey garden fans, see below for some photos of fun fall times! A few weeks ago we took a field trip to Chile’s Orchard to pick apples just as the trees started working their orange magic. Today after our workday we drank cider crafted by Jared from those very apples!
Also this month, we partnered with Greens to Grounds for a workday! After selling our herbs to the student-run nonprofit that offers produce boxes based on the CSA model, we decided to get together in the garden and see what it takes to grow! We also received a return visit from the bearded silky chickens, Stella (the rooster), Wanda, and Angus.
Want to join in on the fun? Come out to the garden’s annual fall festival! Carvin’ in the Garden happens next Sunday, the 25th from 3 to 5, and we’ll be offering pumpkins to carve, biscuits from J.M. Stock Provisions, local apples and other goodies, and lots of good times!! Anyone is welcome to come – students, faculty, staff, family – and if you’ve never been to the garden before, this is a fun day to make a visit. Check out the Facebook event, and we’ll see you in the garden!
