What a terrific summer it has been at the Community Garden! Folks from all around San Leandro came together as a community to grow and share vegetables in our first summer season. Run by SL2050 and located on the grounds of Bethel Community Church at 14235 Bancroft, the Community Garden has 20 large garden beds growing an abundance of produce. Sunflowers and corn grew over 10 feet high, and we enjoyed ample crops of zucchini, tomatoes, green beans, pumpkins, cucumbers, various leafy vegetables, and much more. Our tromboncino squash (pictured) - Italian for trombone - is 5 ft long and we even have our own giant pumpkin! Participants share the harvest for their own use and extra produce is regularly donated to the weekly food pantry co-located at the church. Now that summer is over, we are transitioning to fall and winter crops and taking steps to restore nutrients in the soil. On Saturday, October 7th, from 9 am to 11 am, StopWaste will host a workshop on home composting - all are welcome! On Sunday, October 29th, it’s Hoedown Halloween at the Garden - see below for details! If you would like to participate in growing vegetables at the garden, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
