Welcome Fall 2020

It is October and the cooler days and nights are settling in.  We are raking leaves, enjoying everything pumpkin, and doing a little bit of late season gardening.  Because of the hard work of our members, the garden remains a welcome green space for adults and children of all ages as we herald in the end of our growing season. 

The Garden Is Open
