The Garden is Alive and Well

Even with the hot weather we are having, the garden is looking good! We have been harvesting lots of greens, garlic scapes, raspberries, strawberries and herbs. Our rain barrels are dry, but we can use city water from Trinity Reformed Christian Church. We appreciate the hospitality they show the garden!

We would love to see you out at the garden! Our work times are Wednesday evenings from 5-7PM and Saturday mornings from 9-11AM. On Saturdays we harvest and help with the distribution at the church.

The garden is located on 3626 Ontario at Trinity Reformed Christian Church.

See you in the garden!

Food at First Garden Winding Down

We have had a great season out at the FAF Garden and while our tomatoes haven’t done that well (along with everyone else in Iowa), our cucumbers, greens, potatoes, carrots, garlic, and berries have done well. We hope you will join us for our last month of official garden activities in September. We do plan on having a big celebration to put the garden to bed in October and when we do, we hope you will join. Please enjoy the pictures of Hannah with a bike full of veggies and Gabrielle laughing about the toad on her arm.

Hope to see you out there. The garden is at Trinity Christian Reformed Church on 3626 Ontario in West Ames. Workdays for the rest of the month will be Tuesdays from 5:30-7:30 and Saturday from 9-11. Last day is September 26th.

See you out there!
