January 2018 Garden Update

It's been an exceptionally cold and snowy year so far, but the winter has offered stunning beauty and spring is already peeking through.

Our bees are collecting pollen for their new babies as we prepare the beds for lettuce, cabbages, and radishes .

The beautiful spinach planted in October by members of Edenton Street United Methodist Church Missional Community has flourished, despite the snow and 8 degree nights!  We're now harvesting these leafy greens and providing them to patients.

Planting begins this week, but the garden will be bursting before we know it. We’re so excited for this season!
