JUNE 2018

Wednesday, June 20     

We'll be harvesting potatoes and onions and cooking with them. We have two dishes planned to cook on site using our harvest.  Please bring your best potato recipe to share. We know that you have a really yummy potato recipe or family recipe and we'd love to learn about it. If you bring a plate and fork/spoon and something to drink out of, it saves on garbage but it isn't necessary.  And as always, bring a cloth bag to take home produce!

Saturday, June 23    

Soil&Water rock painting and signage activity. We’ll have large stones that our kids (and grown kids) will paint to place throughout the garden.  We'll provide the template and your creativity makes it awesome!  This will also be an ongoing activity for the remainder of June a long with regular maintenance and planting melons. 

MAY 2018

Saturday, May 5

Soil&Water will participate for the second year in the One Seed, One Community program to save seeds for local seed banks (Mountain View Library).  Hillie Salo will join us this Saturday, May 5, 2018 from 10-12pm and tour our bean planting site! We'll also be planting a few beds of the "Three sisters" companion crops (corn, beans and squash) and mulching strawberries to create a layer of protection from the pill bugs (rolly-poly bugs). Garden lead for the day: Sophie.
