Sweet Summer Sunshine Invigorates Garden

The garden is flourishing thanks to the volunteers old and new, and of course the incredible the summer sunshine!

If you've been coming to the garden regularly, if you've just had a first visit, or if it's been awhile since you've worked in the garden, I want to thank you for your interest in urban gardening, your creativity, your questions, your participation, joyful presence and willingness to support Graze the Roof. We could not do it without you!

I will be away next Thursday July 14th; I will be participating in a week-long garden teacher training course at Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, there will not be a volunteer workday next week. I hope to see you all the following week, Thursday July 21st from noon-2pm!

Also....We have our monthly workshop approaching on Saturday July 23rd on Art and Meditation in the Garden from 10-noon. Please let me know if you'd like to attend (RSVP requested: The workshop is open to all, please tell your friends, it would be wonderful to have a big group to share this special workshop with.

In the garden:

Tomatos are fruiting
Basil smells good and tastes delicious
Sunflowers have opened!
Youth in the teen series have planted heirloom beans that they started in their classroom
Greenhouse got a makeover
Garden beds have name tags
Worms are flourishing
Bees are busy and buzzing, we added a 'honey super' to encourage honey storage for late summer, early fall honey harvest much color, fragrance, texture, nourishment and deep peace...
