August was a very productive month, we made 2 donations a week to our community partners. We harvested lots of fresh herbs like sage, thyme, parsley, basil, chives, mint and dill. We pulled up 100 garlic bulbs to donate this year! A SEEDS member has allowed us to use some of their garden space to grow in and there will be onions harvested soon. Some of the other vegetables we grew or have grown this summer are; carrots, peas, beans, lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, potatoes, radish, spaghetti and Hubbard squashes (as demonstrated in main bulletin image!) and green onions. There was a great crop of raspberries too.
Summer Volunteer Hours
Monday - Wednesday - Friday

Moving into fall always takes me by surprise but I’ve got a few things starting to grow for late season crops. Mostly salad mix, a few carrots and other greens. Keeping it simple so I can get things tidied up for the winter. Yep, I said it. Winter!
See you all next month,
The Greenhouse project on 7th street is developing, slowly but certainly. The City of Nelson is supportive and very busy with other projects. We will be doing a site inspection with them in two weeks to finalize the orientation. It is possible, that we will have it up this autumn.
Stay tuned as we finalize these details.
