Super Saturday Update...

November Super Saturday was fantastic! The morning started off with our community clean up day. With the help of Beacon House and our community friends we got a tremendous amount of work accomplished. Thank you all. Our succulents out front look great and the garden got the attention it needed. The Herbs for Health class was also a big success. We walked through the gardens discussing both the culinary aspects of herbs as well as the medicinal benefits of many of the plants we grow right here at the center. Participants were encouraged to taste and smell as we toured through the garden.

Last week was a quiet week at the Center.  The weather has begun to change and fall seems to be in the air.  We are continuing our clean up and beginning to prepare for fall.  We have gotten some of the fall crops in – cabbage, carrots, lettuce, cauliflower, and kale.  Sweet potatoes are being harvested as well as the sapote and pomegranates.  Yum.  Our pumpkins are maturing, making us think of cooler days and holiday pie. 

Other improvements include; the new tortoise enclosure being built by a neighborhood girl scout troop, our “Ocean” themed room that’s being painted by a volunteering youth group, and a plan for improving the small cement ponds is also being created. 

A special thanks to not only these groups, but to all of the people who help us everyday.
