The community gave a proper turn-out to the urban farm's annual spring plant sale and expo! Visitors scooped up heirloom plants (the tomato plants were especially popular); feasted on BBQ and DVC Culinary delicacies (pork sliders, quinoa stuffed peppers, pasta salad, guacamole,and more!); attended mini-workshops on olive oil, foraging, herbs, gray water systems, and more; took advantage of on-the-spot mini-tutorials on soil health, vermiculture, composting, and organic gardening with Master Gardener Marian Woodard and John Matthesen; spoke with our many wonderful vendors (Eco-Mulch, Succulent Garden Club, Kricket's homemade soaps, and more!); and visited neighbors and friends while enjoying a beautiful sunny spring day at the ranch! If anyone has photos they'd like to share, please e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll post them here! Thanks to everyone for making this annual event a wonderful success!
