It’s been far too long since we’ve updated the news and it’s been a long, hot summer here in Denver. However, we have been blessed with a tremendous growing season as evidenced by our latest newsletter and quite simply the amount of food we’ve been able to donate to local food banks. I’ve attached a link to our newsletter which you can find here:
Beyond what you read there, however, we wanted to give an update on the other events and what’s coming up as we look toward cooler weather and a close to the growing season.
First, we’ve been hosting weekly Feasts on our back patio. Briefly, The Feast is a community potluck meal in which we share food and community and discuss a particular topic which changes from week to week. We’ve discussed such things as abundance, mission, community, nourishment, grace, and contemporary events. Each time we’ve had around 20 people, give or take. If you’re curious we’d love to have you check it out and if you’ve already been we’d love to have you join us again.
Second, we’ve been hosting volunteers in the gardens twice a week and have had tremendous help from those volunteers. You can see some pictures on our Facebook page (just search for The Table).
Finally, we’re in the process of preparing for the end of the season with several community events like “Croptoberfest” which will be a garden closing on October 13 held at our Lakewood garden location. More details to follow on that. We’ll also have a year-end garden clean up and winterization as we make preparations for next year.
All in all, we have been very busy and we’re looking forward to some slower months in the offseason. And we’re working on what types of community activities to plan during those months when people hunker down and stay inside.
Thanks for your interest and partnership. Even though the calendar says September, it still feels like early August most days. We’re waiting for fall with great hope and anticipation!
