At Season's End

Our Garden season is all but over, in the next few weeks we will only see limited Garden items on the salad bar. We do have plenty of flowers and we will continue to use them in the restaurant. One of our members; a young man named Bruno Luchetti has been helping me 3 days a week picking flowers and tomatoes . Bruno likes learning about Organic Gardening and has been a great asset to our Garden project.
