Wow it has been a serious spring. This beautiful weather, flowers everywhere and lots going on!! For those of you who missed it, there was a great article a couple weeks back about me and the garden I run at SFCC in the New Mexican.
It has generated lots of interest and I have been pretty busy since! In the spring flurry there is LOTS going on in the next couple of weeks in and around our garden. First of all, this FRIDAY APRIL 25th From 1-4pm. We will be hosting Deborah Madison, celebrity chef and cookbook author in our garden. She will have a few of her new Vegetable Literacy books for sale and signing and will be touring the gardening with a chefs eye. We will also have a plant sale where we will be selling Chard, Cabbage, Collards, & Tomatoes. This would be a great day to come out and see what we are up to in the SFCC Culinary Arts Garden.
The Following day, APRIL 26th, while the Solar Fiesta is happening on the SFCC Campus, I will be down at the Railyard for EARTH DAY SANTA FE meeting people, sharing about our growing garden and sharing tips on how you can grow your own food. My conmadres from Radical Homemakers of New Mexico will also be there with an amazing spread of homemade fashion, playthings and kitchen concoctions.
And as if that is not enough…I will also be attending the Spring Garden Fair May 3rd from 10-4pm at the Santa Fe County Fair grounds. We will have a table set up and lots to share!
Lots of great opportunities to connect with community and grow together, though how will I ever find time for garden work?!!
