The People's Climate March

6/15 Green had a great showing at this march!  Thanks to all the members who showed that people can make a difference--especially when they work together.  And thanks to Elvira for these great photos! The banner really looks amazing.

People's Climate March

Come join other members of the garden community to go on the People's Climate March in NYC--which is part of the global weekend of action, where communities around the world are demanding action to "create a world with an economy that works for people and the planet."

The date is this Sunday, Sept. 21.  Members are meeting in the garden at 9:15 and bringing noisemakers and drums.  There will be a 5 foot banner that Peggy, Ramona, Elvira, and other members* made for the march. See photo above. 

For more information, check out:

UPDATE: I've changed the time to 9:15 instead of 9:30--members will be leaving the garden at 9:30 so be sure to get there early!

Kale Salad--Yum

I wrote several blogs about how much kale my garden is producing this summer.  I can hardly cut it fast enough.  But that's okay because I'm loving having a kale salad almost every night with dinner.  Like this one with apples and goat cheese--yum!  And I'll have plenty to freeze for the winter.  All from a $2.50 pack of seeds.

I've gotten so much kale this summer--every week I'm getting enough for my family to eat several salads each nice and I know I'll have plenty to freeze.  I'd love to hear what else other people in the garden are growing and what is coming in well this year.

Life and Then Some

I love this time of year in the garden when things seem to be bursting with growth and life and we see so many vegetables ready to harvest.  But then we see plants like this one below that remind us that the season will turn soon and that an important part of the cycle of nature is for plants to create seeds and die.  The contrast against the backdrop of green is just stunning to me.
