This idea was hatched last May– To partner with Thistle Whistle Farm and the Kids’ Pasta Project to create a learning garden and grow 100s of pounds of tomatoes for the Kids’ Pasta Project dinners. It was a win-win-win situation.
Thistle Whistle fulfilled a goal to bring more of the community to the farm.
KPP would be able to use local, organic foods for their dinners.
I would achieve the goal of hosting a summer program gardening with kids!
We did a lot in our 14 sessions: we designed, seeded, transplanted, trellised, weeded, composted, collected eggs, harvested honey, studied basic plant biology, laughed, got sunburns, irrigated, and a lot more. I will post a series of photo from throughout the season.
Now it’s time reflect and plan for next season!
