Welcome to our Wednesday WE Gardens report! Each week in this space, we'll feature the latest news from the garden, recipes, and more.
WE hosted the annual Summer Solstice Salutations in the gardens on Saturday.
Over 300 people attended for a day of fun, food and fellowship for the whole family.
View more Summer Solstice pictures on our Facebook page.
The gardens were blessed with some much-needed rain this week, and as you can see, the crops are coming along beautifully.
And now for this week's update from Program Director Ama Shambulia:
greetings garden family & friends,
