Hey everyone! As promised, here's some more information on next week's daily garden work sessions (Sunday-Friday). We are going to show the new students just how much we dig gardens! :)
Sunday, August 29th: 5:00-7:00pm
Monday, August 30th: 5:30-7:30pm
at 6:00 Philip J. Marshall will be coming to take pictures of us in action at the garden, to use for a new show he is developing for Maryland Public Television on Food Sustainibility with Philip Lempert (Television & Radio News Reporter/ Newspaper Columnist/ Author/ Consumerologist/ Food Marketing Exper), Aka "The Supermarket Guru." The show is scheduled to air nationally on October 22nd on Maryland Public Television, and our pictures will be used as an example of an urban garden!

Wednesday, September 1st: 4:00-6:00pm
Thursday, September 2nd: 4:00-6:00pm
Friday, September 3rd: 10am-12pm (tentative, only if needed)
Location: For those of you who haven't been there, the garden is located on the Northwest corner of campus, closest address would be 120th and Broadway, but it is easier to get to by entering at 116th and walking North up "West Walk." The garden is in between Dodge Fitness Center and Pupin Hall (the physics building) -- you can't miss it, just look for the sunflowers shining heads up in the sky!
Activities: Include planting seeds (chicory, a lettuce that can grow in colder weather ), inoculating logs with mushroom plug spawn, weeding, thinning, harvesting, painting signs, and tending to/assessing compost bins.
Come for as much time as you want, all volunteers are welcome! Bring friends, family, or anyone else who may want to come check it out! Thanks, and hope to see you soon.
