What’s happened …
Our community garden, at the Apple Pie Ridge Campus, continues to flourish..
The harvest time has finally just started to happen! As the August newsletter was being produced, our cucumbers started coming in. One of the things we wish to do with this produce is to provide disadvantaged people with fresh, nutritious, vegetables. Some of the places we’re planning to distribute them include the Budget Motel, Highland Food Pantry and the Winchester Rescue Mission. A first batch of cucumbers was ready for delivery on July 17, 2018. There is more (a lot) to come. Tomatoes, beans, corn (and other items) still await harvest. You may have heard the "buzz” about our beehive and we hope to have some news soon about that.
Our thanks are extended to Stacey Stickley Roy for heading up this effort, Mark Roy for plowing and tilling the land, the watering crew (Donna White, Janie and Greg Bowman, Stacey Stickley-Roy, Angie Palumbi, Gary Dunn, Jenny Nichols, JoEllen Smith and others), as well as those who donated (and continue to donate) materials. This has truly been a community effort so far.
To see how you can help, call Stacey Stickley-Roy at (540)-974-1299.
All skill levels are appreciated.
