arrow explores: west broad market garden

we hope everyone has had a good summer!

we recently took a field trip to the west broad market garden, on the ground of the former west broad school...we had such a great inspiring!

rebecca ennis, farm manager, led our crew on a tour of the farm...we tasted tomatillos, planted fava beans and even played with their maypole. we also got to meet ms. ethel, who is a longtime garden volunteer...what a great day we had!

we also made a donation to the garden as a thank you for letting us come visit! consider supporting them, by volunteering or making other donations...
