Fall Photos

Florence, Uting, and Andy in the corn patch. The corn was at least 6'6" and the stalks make great compost.

Marigolds surround the sweet corn. These flowers attract pollinators, repel pests, and look pretty. Part of our integrated organic garden.

Ginormous sunflowers! These guys were a real hit with the bumble bees.

Fresh salad prepared by Heather Wenrick. Garden tomatoes, basil, cucumbers, and scalions dance with local feta cheese and a splash of olive oil.

Students enjoy the food at weekly community dinners. Thanks to the house residents at Berkeley Center for folding farm veggies into the menu
