Hello Irving Gardeners and Future Irving Gardeners!
First, thanks to everyone who helped to make the Irving garden so successful this year! All of the spring weeding, bed turning and planting; the summer tending and watering (in the face of some killer heat); and the fall harvesting and cooking helped to make this one of the most successful years to-date for the Irving garden. Thanks especially to Reshma for all her hard work keeping things organized and getting us all moving in the same direction. What a beautiful (and tasty) garden our school community grew!
Alas, even for those of us who strive to live in a constant state of denial that summer has ended, the time has come to acknowledge that winter is coming. We hope you can join us to celebrate a great growing season and put the Irving garden to bed for the winter.
