Season Finale of Tuesday Evening Work Parties

Come one, come all!  This coming Tuesday (October 30th) is our final Tuesday evening work party for the season.  We'll be out (most likely getting a bit wet!) from 4 - 6ish at SAGE.  We'll be completing a variety of different tasks to get SAGE all buttoned up for the winter.  To get you in the mood for a work party, I've picked a sampling of photos below from Tuesday work parties throughout this season that highlight the variety of projects we've worked on.  Hope to see you Tuesday!

Cheers,
Deanna (Garden Manager)

PS: For those of you already pondering what do to on Tuesday evenings next season, work parties will resume in late March/early April!
Many early work parties involved spreading at least a bit of
leaf mulch.

Tuesday evening superstar volunteers, Denise and Paige,
planting strawberries.  Planting, whether it was starts or seeds, happened all season long.

doing a late season harvest of delicious Sungold cherry tomatoes.
As the warm weather crops ripened a good portion of work parties
became dedicated to harvesting time consuming items like
cherry tomatoes, green beans and tomatillos.

Just a couple of weeks ago, the warm weather
crops were chopped in, cover crop seed sprinkled and
straw mulch spread to prepare for winter
