Pickin’ and Picnic’n

Yesterday the thunder rolled, the lightening struck, but the rain held off, and the Feed, Weed, and Seed Garden Event went on. Despite the ominous weather, visitors to the garden were able to enjoy some fabulously delicious local food donated by Fischer Farms, IMU Dining, and the IU Office of Sustainability and prepared by chefs from IMU Dining. The event brought new volunteers to the Campus Garden and a number of regulars. Together, they were able to destroy the Forest of Weeds that had been threatening our vulnerable bean plants. You can check out pictures from the event on our Facebook page.

Disappointed that you missed free food? No worries, the garden is beginning to churn out chard, kale, zucchini, and tons of basil, so come to a workday and pick up some free veggies! Workdays are Tuesdays 5-7 p.m. and Fridays from 9-11 a.m.

P.S. We also have a number of edible weeds, one of which has more omega 3 than fish oil. Come to the garden and pull some for your salad or smoothie.

Brave volunteers working hard after the picnic (notice the storm clouds in the distance)
