OldEvents and NewEvent: YOGA!
Yesterday was a busy day. It started with the CHAD SUP group coming to the garden at 1:45pm. We’re exited to know that they’ll be with us weekly. The kids proved their interest in Emelie’s spiel last week by naming all sorts of different plants and herbs that we made them identify as a way to test if they had been paying attention. They were also super excited to see that some of the seeds they planted before had already sprouted. Most of them were really enthusiastic about doing garden work. They all proved to be great ‘onion thinners’ and ‘compost turners.’ By the end of the visit, Becky and I challenged them again to try new vegetables and/or fruits… Hopefully they were listening because by this point everyone seemed pretty tired. We’re already brainstorming on what to do next time!
Then, workday went incredibly well. A great amount of people from the Summer School showed up eager to get their hands dirty. We did tons of things around the Garden: harvesting garlic and turnips, planting more parley and some rosemary, weeding, more onion thinning, turning the soil in beds, thinning of dead peas in an effort to save them from the hot temperatures, watering, amongst others. Because we’re getting good amounts of produce to harvest, we made a big salad to to reward ourselves for all the hard work. It lacked ingredients (no worries, tomatoes and peppers are coming soon!), but it was still delicious and extremely refreshing. We’ll be having more produce in the future so don’t miss out on our reward snacks! Thanks for all your help!
After the workday, Movie Night ensued. We watched the suspenseful and captivating movie The Prestige. Remember that we’ll be having movie nights all Fridays from 8pm on (it’s getting dark enough to start the movies around 8:15pm,), EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO COME! Check out our listings on the Events section of the website.
last, but not least: YOGA, YOGA, YOGA! Every Tuesday.
Through this post I also wanted to announce that we’ll be having YOGA CLASSES every Tuesday at 6pm, starting next Tuesday, July 10th. The lovely, amazing, and SUPER awesome Kelly Robinson will be our instructor. She’s volunteered to offer the course open to all public at no cost… It’s too great for me to believe, but it’s happening. The Garden will find its way to repay her. I’M PSYCHED!
