June is harvest time in the SW Community Garden! Throughout the month we’ll be harvesting garlic, lettuce, blackberries, and a variety of herbs. The blackberries are purposely located along our food fence so that any passersby can grab a couple without actually coming into the garden. Remember, the darker the berry, the sweeter the juice! If you don’t see us in the garden, you may see us posted up outside of Safeway giving away our harvests, so keep an eye out!
In addition to our general garden maintenance work, this month, we’ll also be adding artwork to our fences. If you have some artistic talent you’d like to contribute, please stop by!
Our garden workdays are Wednesdays 6-7 p.m., and Sundays 4-6 p.m. Workdays are canceled on days of inclement weather. We collect food scraps during workdays, but if those times are inconvenient, please reach out to us at swgardensdc@gmail.com to utilize our 24/7 composting system. You can stay in the loop with us through our website swgardens.org. Hope to see you in the garden!
