Here are some highlights:

We recorded a harvest of 1,500 lbs. of produce from our garden! That's a lot of tasty veggies!

Built the Education Pavilion and benches

Learned bunches at the monthly workshops including topics like Healthy Soil and Compost, Garden Harvest Cooking Class, Seed Saving, Canning, and Fermentation

Planted pear trees, raspberries, chokecherries, and more in our Food Forest

Won a Blue Ribbon at the La Plata County Fair for our beautiful veggies

Built a wheelchair accessible plot with help from Probuild and Home Depot

Planted part of the Insectary with hard work from the Riverview Elementary students

Ate lots of pie at our first open house, Pies in the Garden

Enjoyed each other's company while supporting each other through our gardening trials and tribulations

And much more!
