With our third season wrapping up we got together for a potluck and some reflection.
Here is a reminder of what we did in 2015:
- Harvested over 2,500 pounds of produce, up from 1,500 pounds in 2014!
- Dove in to our Permaculture Food Forest with hands on learning at workdays
(Including a grant and volunteers from the Rotary Club of Durango on Arbor Day
and Nick and Heather Bartow who taught us about the gift model.)
and with attendance to the National Permaculture Convergence.
- Grew our gardening knowledge at monthly workshops covering topics like Growing Tomatoes in SW Colorado, Mushroom Cultivation, The Science of Cooking,The Wild Wisdom of Weeds, and Cover Cropping for Soil Health.
- The wheelchair accessible plot got growing with an awesome crew from Southwest Center for Independence.
- Celebrated our 2nd annual open house, Pies in the Garden, with delicious homemade pie and mud pies making by kids (not for eating!).
Can't wait to see what 2016 will bring!
Until then here is a little insight into why we are community gardeners...
