volunteer – Loving Spoonful

By: Loving Spoonful  09-12-2011

The Acorn Garden is grown for the sole purpose of donating its harvest to Grow a Row, and we are excited to announce that this year we have already collected 6500 lbs of fresh produce, blowing away our original goal of 5000 lbs!

We have a bunch of fun activities planned throughout the afternoon! We will be putting the garden plots to bed for the winter, as well as planting some garlic (which we harvested from our very own garden this year!) There will also be a craft table for the kids, so come out and enjoy the fun!

Don’t miss out on our other activities and workshops we have planned!
3pm: Composting Workshop
4pm: A backyard Hen demonstration
5pm: Time to share a meal!

All are welcome to join us and bring a dish to share, dishes to eat on/with, and your favourite gardening gloves, tools and accesories We hope you can join us in celebrating a phenomenal season here at the garden!

Hope to see you all there!!

As we strive for our summer goal of 5000lbs, we encourage anyone with surplus food from their gardens to drop it off at our stall at the Downtown Farmer’s Market on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2-4:30pm, and Saturdays from 11am-4:30pm. Rosie and the kids have also been growing a small garden on the Wally Elmer lawn, from which they will soon harvest tomatoes and cucumbers for their very own salsa.
