Harvesting at the Black Mountain Home Garden Project

 

We have had a great harvest at the Black Mountain Home for Children Garden Project so far this year!

The harvest has included more than 300 pounds of beans, squash, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, corn, zucchini, and basil. We are expecting at least another 500 pounds of sweet potatoes when we dig up the 500 plants in late September or early October. Watch this space for the date of that community volunteer event.

Part of the process of cleaning up the garden after the summer harvest is getting ready for the next planting. We hope you will join us in a lovely pastoral space in God’s creation on September 22, from 9:00 – 11:00 am, to prepare the ground using the “lasagna garden” technique. We will have piles of dirt, mulch, manure, and wood chips to spread and many hands will make the work lighter. Turn into the property off Lake Eden Road by the stone silo with the cross on it. Bring gloves and drinking water.
