The past few weeks at the Colgate Community Garden have been busy and jam packed with projects and events. On the evening of Thursday, August 21 we held an open house for Colgate faculty and staff. We gave tours to visitors who were also able to explore the garden, eat cookies, and purchase vegetables at a farm stand packed with produce picked that afternoon.
The next morning we were graced with a visit from first year volunteers participating in a pre-orienation program led by the Cove. For two hours they helped us add on to the main pathway of the garden and weed the flower bed. They also painted some of the rocks that line the pathway of the flower bed. We look forward to adding more art into the space as more visitors drop by. The Community Garden team was happy to see so many new faces around the garden, and with the arrival of students for the coming semester we look forward to seeing many more visitors!
