The abundant smiles & harvest today were awesome. We are having a 16 student summer camp all this week that is packed with garden-tastic activities, tastings, art, and massive fun. Today we made pies with Kelli (thank you!), harvested giant squashes, picked and shelled scarlet runner beans, did leaf rubbings, walked to the p-patch, harvested lavender for lavender oil, and so much more.
It’s great to have students in the garden during the summer, which is the ultimate challenge of garden education. It’s a great group who are really excited to be here. We have so many special guests this week doing art, poetry, and medicinal plants. This is gonna be a special week for sure. Stay tuned!
