Pea Harvest at the School Garden!

Pea Harvest at the School Garden! This Friday, July 25, from 12-1:30pm. We'll harvest the hundred+ pea plants that the school kids planted earlier this year. Many of these plants are five-to-six feet tall and all have been highly productive and are at their prime this week. The summer camp kids have been enjoying the peas but we have more than can be eaten off the vine, so the extra bounty will be harvested and saved for the Soup for Seniors program. All volunteers can take home some produce from the garden. Please come out for a good cause -- we need your help!
