On Tuesday afternoon, we had a hearty group of first year students in the green cluster up at the garden! We enjoyed cider and donuts, good conversation, and digging up potatoes, harvesting brussels sprouts, and other hardy crops (leeks, onions, kale, acorn squash, pumpkins, and eggplants!) Thanks for all the help, and we were happy to have some new visitors and help! Here’s some pictures of our work, courtesy of Gail Carlson! Check out our community dinner on Thursday evening 10/6 in the Pugh center/Pugh center kitchen at 6!
