Summer harvest continues....
We are grateful for abundance this month-- the abundance of care that we observe within our community during this pandemic, the abundance of civic action in support of social and racial justice, and the abundance of fresh produce coming out of our gardens!

Our produce donations weigh in at 700 pounds (that's a lot of leafy greens) and we still have kale, beans, squash, carrots and tomatoes to harvest in the coming weeks.

This year, we will donate all of the produce that we grow. We rely on community support to make this healthy, delicious food available to families in need. Join us!
Mid-summer Gardening Tips
If you happen to have an overabundance of produce in your own garden, we invite you to participate in the CSU Grow & Give Modern Victory Garden Project.

Don't forget about our Home Garden Resource Guide. Created by our Garden Director, Laurel Smith, it includes some excellent guidance specific to gardening in this area. There's still time to plant seeds!

Are you pruning your suckers? If not, watch this quick video showing you how to do so. It will keep those tomato plants under control, minimize disease problems and maximize yield.
What will garden-based learning look like this year?
Your guess is as good as ours, but we are in direct communication with BVSD and are ready and willing to help where we can.

Regardless of the scenario, we are preparing to support the teachers and parents at our 20 partner schools with lesson plans, pre-recorded videos for student-viewing and instructional assistance. We want our kiddos to participate in garden-based learning, even if it’s from afar!

Lesson plans and educational resources can be found here . More to come!
Children's Book Recommendation
How a Seed Grows, by Helene Jordan , will engage your young ones (ages 3-7) in a fun science experiment and hopefully get your family growing beans this summer. It's not too late! Listen to it read aloud by Stories for Kids or by a young farmer and his mom. Then, plant some seeds and follow up with some literacy activities provided by board member and English teacher, Jess Schmitt.
