What Else

It’s Here!  October 21 & November 4, 4th Annual Farm to EVERY Fork!
Our focus this year is on childhood nutrition and school lunch. We’ll be screening a witty and provocative documentary about two kids exploring the world of food as it relates to what ends up in their school lunches. And  the Head of Nutrition for the San Juan Unified School District will speak on the challenges of providing nutritious meals amidst regulations and budget restrictions. Click here for more information.

October 30, 10 a.m. Blessing of the Garden and Remembrance for Dick Kidder
October 30th has been set for an observance at Box 6 in the Plots of Love Garden to remember Dick Kidder and also bless the Garden. This is a joint GPC/Arden Christian effort. As part of the day we’ll plant Dick’s box with sweet peas—his favorite—and cover crops or a late season crop.
