End of the Season and Our Final Work Party

unnamed

Fall Greetings to you all!

Today is the first day of October and somehow the air already feels different. The dampness of Autumn has descended upon these woods; the air is cool and the sun hangs lower in the sky each day. As the season changes, so does the garden, and we’re finding ourselves putting everything to rest. We’ve been pulling up our tomatoes and beans, and making space for crimson clover and rye to take root so that they might keep our garden protected all winter long. It’s a bittersweet time for gardeners as we say goodbye to the bountiful summer, but it’s also a very special and gratifying time as well.

So, in honor of this beautiful season we are going to celebrate! Please join us for our FINAL WORK PARTY of the season on October 9th, 9am-4pm. Come sow cover crop, harvest winter squash and share in the beauty of the Westgarden.  Hope to see you all there!

We’d also like to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this season so wonderful! We could not have done it without you!
