The Tastes of Summer
by Lindsey Goldberg, Graze the Roof Project Manager
Tomatoes! Tomatoes! Tomatoes!
25 plants are happy, green and the fruits of our stewardship are hanging heavy and ripe from their fertile branches! Graze the Roof has tomatoes!
Please join us in our extended late summer-early fall volunteer hours of 10a-2p every Thursday to taste a tomato, turn the compost, build soil, container garden construction, weed, water, and experience the continued transformation of a rooftop into a thriving and abundant food system.
Integrating the GLIDE Free Meals Program has been a part of the long-term vision of Graze the Roof since it’s inception. In recent weeks we have been retrieving coffee grounds from the Thursday morning brew to help heat our compost, as well as food scraps to feed the worms in the vermicomposting bin. These are steps we are actively taking in collaboration with the kitchen team to integrate these two food/community centers within GLIDE.
Last week, FYCC garden classes started up again. This season Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade as well as 3rd through 5th grade will all get the opportunity to spend time in the garden on a weekly basis! The youthful energy truly helps the essence of the garden to come alive!
And, don’t forget….
