THE GARDEN STORY

We give back not only to those in need within our community, but also the future generations of this wonderful community. What started out as a great idea has grown exponentially and has become an amazing reality.

Stormy Weather, New Arrivals and Solar!

Click to enlarge photo
The ALC Students arrived early and worked fast to beat the stormy weather that has now opened up on the garden!  They picked cucumbers, lettuce, summer squash and zucchini.  New cops that they just started harvesting today are the raspberries and pea pods! Tom Wendt and the students will be returning on Monday for a food lesson plan in the garden. 

 On the far right of the garden picture you will notice our new solar system being installed next to the garden.  This system will supply our building with power and on the weekends we will be able to sell energy back to Xcel Energy.  We will be doing some educational lessons in the garden on solar power once the system is complete and sharing that information on our blog!
