It should be a hot one, so come early to work in the garden, so we can be poolside when it heats up later in the day. 
Come join us for our INTERdependence Celebration with education and work in the gardens, orchard tour & fruit tastings followed by Poolside fun & BBQ potluck. Our first two events have had really sweet energy with good folks of all ages and experience.The annual garden is now in production and looking better each week. Collectively we harvested Carrots, Greens, Amaranth, Plums & Raspberries. We transplanted two 30ft beds with tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, tomatillos, peppers, arugula & flowers, and set up the drip irrigation. We still have several more beds to clean up & plant including our “Back 40” area. With perseverance and a little love from PachaMama we’re hoping to share the abundance at harvest time. Come help us get there :-)Check out the pics of the Solstice event:
