More Garden Fun
As always, we've been having lots of fun in the garden since our last blog post. We hosted a Garden Salad Social where members of the Saint Michael's community came down and shared a delicious lunch of fresh food from the garden with us. While it is gratifying to see the seeds you've planted produce fruits, it is even more gratifying to see people enjoying the literal fruits of your labor.
The salad social was such a hit that we plan on having more of them so keep your eyes out for an invitation from the sustainability listserv! If you're not already subscribed, you should be! It's the best way to keep up with what events are going on with sustainability all around campus.
We enjoyed not only the kinds of things you would expect to find in a salad (lettuce, radishes, snap peas, etc.) but also were able to include some wild treats like sour clover and black raspberries! We also gave people the opportunity to mix up their own salad dressings. This is not only a tasty way to accommodate everyone but also helps to engage people in experimenting with their food.
