Davidson Community Garden Back on Fall Scheduled

With Fall just around the corner, the Davidson Community Garden has moved back to its regular Saturday morning schedule.

From Connie and Eddie Beach latest email blast....

Halloo all!

Guess what - it's time to start planting fall seeds and transplants! A group from the Community School of Davidson is coming out Friday to get started on the planting and we'll follow up Saturday. Let's see if between both work sessions we can get six box beds done by Saturday's 11:15 weighing-up time.  Fall plants are the same as spring plants and have generally done really well for us: beets, chard (yeah, but let's cut back on that), kale, carrots, lettuce, spinach, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collards, and cabbage.

The DCG regularly donates fresh produce to the Loaves and Fishes food pantry at Ada Jenkins.  In recent years this had totalled a full ton annually.

Come on out and pitch in if you are looking for something to do Saturday morning.
Learn about that Southern staple, ocra.  Harvest some beans.  Pick a few flowers.

This is one of the real gems of Davidson.

Check it out!
