It’s that time of year when the work in our Urban Farm moves at a rapid pace. Entering our first full season of having our Playful Learning area in conjunction with the garden makes the start of this summer extra cheerful. We have felt inspired watching this labor of love grow as abundantly as the crops that feed our clients there. If you’re interested in following along as our gardeners work their magic, you can follow our garden manager, Rob Vaughan at www.charityblooms.org. We hope to see you in the garden!
Read on for an update on our “The Izzo” compost maker, information on upcoming events and efforts and a recap of our special Veterans in the Garden event. As always, thanks for being a part of our commUNITY.
Diane Renner Executive Director
The Izzo has been digesting 150 lbs. of food scraps, moldy bread, dried
leaves, coffee grounds, and slimy produce per day, over the past month. Soil
that is removed from our composter goes into a 2-week curing plot(s)
before getting added to our urban farm beds. We are excited about all the
produce and food scraps we have saved from going into landfills. Keep an eye out for the big reveal coming soon!
