Morning Glories Open On Jay St

26 Oct

Thank You For Your Support!

thank-you-note

Nearly 50 people came out Saturday evening to celebrate the harvest from the 2017 season. We shared dozens of dishes incorporating tomatoes, garlic, cucumbers, and herbs from the garden, including frittatas, noodles, salads as well as salsas, spreads, and more.

Thanks to the kindness and generosity of these and other Concord Village residents, we raised over $400. for the 2018 garden season. In addition, we harvested at least as many sunflower seeds as dollars from the giant flowers grown on CV grounds.

Funds will go toward soil replenishment and replacement beds.  To learn more about annual expenses, and membership, on What It Means To Be A Member.  If you’d like to get email notifications when there are new posts on the blog, CVEarthlab.com, be sure to enter your address in the box that appears on the right hand side of the home page.  The header will invite you to signup to follow CVEarthlab.com via email.

Feel free to harvest herbs or take some of the dried garlic (in ziplock bags at communal garden beds, some laundry rooms) if you are cooking for Saturday’s potluck. (Please do not take all the garlic cloves in the bags; the garlic is disapearing fast).
