Green Fest, Fall Festival, and various workdays

3 Nov

Hi everyone!  We have a lot to share this week about the garden and other fun events happening on campus.  Firstly, we’d like to thank everyone who attended Fall Festival at Penn Garden during Food Week.  We now have a beautiful hand-painted sign, and we planted garlic–which we unfortunately had to re-plant because of a squirrel invasion.  The cider and vegetable soup (which was made with our own kale!) were absolutely delicious.

Last Friday we also had a workday.  The agenda that day was to re-plant the garlic, and harvest lettuce and baby spinach.  As usual, we got to keep what we picked.  But don’t fret if you missed this past workday.  We have another workday coming up this Friday 2-4.  If possible, please bring plastic bags to take food home in:  we’re running low.  Also, a red thermos was left at the Garden a few weeks ago.  If you’re reading this, and you’ve lost it, please come and pick it up.

Lastly, don’t miss Green Fest!  The blurb says it all:

“GreenFest, Penn’s campus-wide environmental festival, aims to raise environmental awareness and help facilitate the collaboration of eco-friendly groups. Our goal is to educate students as to how they can do their part in the green revolution.”

There’ll also be free food and, best of all, we’ll be there too.

So come to Penn Garden, come to Green Fest, and stay green!
