GREEN POWER GARDEN 

November 6th  GARDEN UPDATE

 

For Molly, Saturday was the saddest day of the year as another garden season ended.

 

 

On Saturday Green Power was fortunate to be joined by Carroll University Alumni, EnActus, Student Activity’s, Youth2Discover, and students from Dr. K’s class who braved the cold, wet weather and muddy ground to harvest the last of the veggies and clean up the fields. Marcy and Molly hung out with them and got very dirty. They picked bok choy, radishes, Swiss Chard, sweet potatoes, collard greens, broccoli, and cabbage. The rain slowed to a mist but the ground was already pretty saturated. We are so blessed that these groups come back year after year, rain or shine!

 

 

On Sunday, Molly and Marcy met with an awesome friend, who is helping to find a new place to grow food next season if Larry’s property is sold. There are many people to consider and questions to get answers to, but conversations have started. We will keep you all in the loop.

 

Have a great week!

 

Thank you all for your support during the 2017 Green Power Garden Season.


Molly
