First, some news:
Our next workday will be Dec. 8 from 9-11.
ALL are also invited to attend two events:
- Community Thanksgiving – after church at the Nor’Kirk on Sunday, November 18
- Harvest Party – Dec. 8 at 6:30, hosted by the Hines! Please consider bringing a favorite dish to share.
Well, it didn’t rain, but we had a barn-stormer of a big workday!
Our original goal was just to focus on harvesting–and we had a lot to harvest! Even before adding our total from the workday, we have donated more than 2,200 pounds to local food pantries.
We also harvested and donated at least 200 pounds (estimated) on Saturday–100 pounds of that was JUST sweet potatoes!
(One was as big as our youngest gardener!)
Because we had so many helpers, we were also able to work on breaking down our very impressive clippings pile.
We also cleaned up the garden beds in preparation for the cold days ahead!
