Lovely Spring Day in the FAF Garden

Hey folks,

We had a lovely day out in the garden. Found some baby bunnies (which are cute despite the fact that they chomp our veggies) and tried to fix some fencing. We weeded, watered and almost finished planting. We have another week or so to get everything planted. This means we could really use your help with the garden! Please consider joining us. You can see that the potatoes are already coming up and the strawberries are fruiting, which means they will ripen soon. We need more bodies in the garden. I know that many of you give back to the community in a multitude of ways but please consider joining us a day or so a week out at the FAF Garden (3626 Ontario). Our next Workday is Tuesday (5:30-7:30), Thursday (5:30-7:30) and Saturday (9-11). Hope to see you out there. We have lots of herbs and even some greens to take home. We welcome volunteers taking some of the harvest home with them as thank you for your hard work. The season will be even more plentiful in the coming weeks.

What a productive first few weeks we have had at the garden! We have successfully planted all the potatoes (5 varieties), all the onion starts (5+ varieties) and planted all the raised beds to greens, including salad greens, kale and a bit of spicy mustard for the adventurous. We are working hard on digging up the rest of the weeds, fixing up the raspberry patch and looking for fencing to improve our deer proof fence! We have plenty of tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, squash and other lovely veggies starts that will be going out soon!

We really hope that you might join us this summer for some garden workdays. Currently the workdays are scheduled Tues 5:30-7:30, Thurs 5:30-7:30, and Sat 9-11. Please email foodatfirstgarden if you want to join us this summer!

We’re Moving March 29, 2015!


Hi Everyone! You haven’t heard from us much lately because we’ve been pretty busy with a big big big project. After about a year and a half of conversations, negotiations and meetings, we’ve finalized an agreement with First Christian Church to host not only our daily meals but also our Free Market! That’s right, both parts of our program under one roof. This is a real game changer for our program! Over the next several weeks we’ll post details and pictures of the construction and all the people doing the work so please stay tuned. The first regular daily meal will be at FCC this Sunday at 5:45 March 29, 2015 so come on down and let us show you around and eat with us while your at it. We’d love to see you!!
