Dear DOT Garden Friends,
We’ve entered the season of transition here at the garden. Summer bounty is subsiding and we’re slowly making our way to fall and winter crops. For this coming fall and winter, we’re opting to keep things simple and focus on heritage grains, cover crops, and garlic.
We’ve had a bounty of new classes out in the garden and decided a subdued winter grow-out will allow us to stay devoted to curriculum development and experiential learning. As part of this, we’ve had a great time embarking on fermentation and medicinal plant projects with the students. Some of these treats will even be finding their way to you (hello prickly pear vinegar!) in the coming months.
As your own garden needs lessen, know that you’re always welcome to come play in the dirt with us. A simple season though it may be, we’ll still have plenty of projects and need of helping hands.
We’d love to see you in the garden!
