The beans are coming in, the tomatoes are ripening, and the squash is starting to produce so now is the time to see the fruits of our labors. Come to the Home Grown Garden this Saturday from 9:00 – 11:00 am and pick a little, prune a little, weed a little, and enjoy the setting of this giving garden in the glorious splendor of God’s creation. Check out His creatures, too. The Home has goats, donkeys, and chickens in a large pen right next to the Garden.
All ages are welcome and you don’t have to be an experienced gardener to help. Garden supervisors will show you what to do and how to do it. There might even be a few beans for you to take home and taste the goodness of freshly picked produce.
Bring drinking water and a hat and sunscreen – unless it is raining! Reminder: There is no bathroom at the garden.
