Happy July from the Garden!

Hope everyone had a relaxing and celebratory long weekend! 

Here in the garden we had a special holiday movie night featuring Forrest Gump for a little US history.

We also had fun tie dying at the Grateful Dead themed Farmer's Market and made a little trip over to Pete and Jen's Backyard Birds on Wednesday for a CRAFT on livestock. 

Today the garden is bountiful with produce after all the nice weather. We have tons of salad, Asian greens, bell peppers, chard, kale and a variety of herbs to bring over to the summer shelter for dinner tonight. 

The Garden's Ultimate June Week or How is it Already July??

As I sit here under the uncertain, ever-changing skies of Cambridge, I realize that it has been a full month since this summer garden internship began. Officially, summer started last week with the solstice, and now here July comes chomping at the bit, soon to overtake us whether we like it or not. This too is the nature of the garden, a small patch of calm and methodical growth and decay, defiantly moving too slowly to be perceptible, yet deliberately proceeding in the midst of the chaotic concrete urban landscape.

Welcome to Summer

Welcome to summer (ignoring the rain) in the Harvard Community Garden! We are Marina DeFrates and Kevin Friel, the new garden interns for this summer. 
We just wanted to bring your attention to a few things happening in and around the garden this summer:
  • Workdays: every Friday from 3-6PM, beginning this Friday; come help out around the garden and bring some tasty edibles home with you

Earth Day Brunch & Workday

Today we had an Earth Day Brunch and Workday! We invited all of the new prospective Harvard students to join us since it was their visiting weekend. A few of the garden members cooked some delicious brunch food like focaccia, banana bread, and zucchini/walnut bread. We also had veggies with dip! The workday was also extremely productive, thanks to the help of everyone that came out to join us. We finished our last greenhouse, planted spinach, tomatoes, chard, lettuce, and arugula, and we painted more veggie signs.
