This past Saturday we hosted a group of USF student volunteers participating in their annual Stampede of Service. The volunteers arrived bright and early, the weather cooperated, and we all got to work. We spent the morning pulling weeds all around the edges and down the rows, turned the compost and sifted dirt, watered the plants that needed it, and had many interesting conversations about growing organic food. Many of the students took home greens (kale, collards, mustard greens) as well as tomatoes and lemongrass which we were so happy to share.
Thank you to the garden members who came out and provided guidance for the students, and Denise for bringing the refreshing lemon water!
