On June 19th, 2022, we began our community supported agriculture program where we pay young farmhands to harvest fruits, vegetables, and herbs from the garden then deliver them to seniors living in public housing. 2 of the youth participating are two sisters that first started coming to the garden in 2015!
On June 25th, 2022, we held our first cooking demonstration of the year for seniors living in Greenleaf public housing. Nutritionist, Stephanie Eyocko, prepared a cucumber salad, a salad with arugula and butter lettuce, two different types of dressing, and a rosemary flavored seltzer water using produce that came from the garden. The theme was Salads Aren’t Boring, and Ms. Jewel, one of the attendees, definitely agreed!
