625 Lbs!!! WOW!!! Community Garden Update.

produce-procurement

It’s the end of the Garden Season and we just completed the last harvest of the year just last week! What a great garden year it has been. Although we grew in just 5 garden beds and kept on setting up more for the following year (can’t wait) we managed to harvest 625lbs! What a great first year number! Just thinking about the numbers we’ll have next year with 12 garden beds! WOW!

The Diner prepared, froze and used as much as it could, some was set out for people to take home with them. There was so much this year we had to donate food to various food programs in the city. Programs such as the Salvation Army and Downtown Mission. Both locations were very thankful for the fresh produce!

As some are aware, the Ten Friends Community Garden is a part of the Community Garden Collective. Through this the garden received a donation from Caesars Windsor. We received Hazelnut Bushes and Blackberry Canes. These are already in the garden and we hope for a great yield next year from those! As always we will need LOTS of volunteers for next years garden. If you are interested please submit a VOLUNTEER CONTACT REQUEST via this site and we will file it away for next years’ season!

We hope that those who came out and helped this year had a great time, it really was a HUGE success! Thank you to all who participated and remember, BIG plans for next year too!

Thank you all!
