We Harvested and We Fested...

...and met some great students and one awesome teacher. AND heard of the always-forward-thinking Vicki Nowicki's latest project, a Seed-Sharing Library. Oh, and the food was tasty as usual.

Lisa Hootman's AP Environmental Studies students described the garden they planted at Westmont High School this summer. The vegetables that they are harvesting are being used by cafeteria staff in school lunches.

Annual Harvest Fest

Join the Downers Grove Organic Gardeners and celebrate the end of the growing season at our Harvest Fest at 7 p.m. Wednesday, September 19. Bring samples of food featuring garden-grown vegetables as well as any questions or stories from your summer in the garden. The night will also feature a tomato taste off and unusual vegetable show, so bring your best tomatoes, your ugliest zucchini, or your hottest pepper. Our special guests will be from Westmont High School, who will talk about their gardening program.
