Community Kitchen Garden Thriving in Summer Heat, Volunteers Help with the Harvest, Weeds
by Jonah Holland, PR & Marketing Coordinator & Brian Vick, Community Kitchen Garden Coordinator, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
The Community Kitchen Garden is thriving in this summer heat, and so are the weeds. That’s why we were so grateful when a team of CarMax associates showed up on Monday to help us with a variety of garden tasks including staking and tying tomatoes, harvesting cucumbers, and weeding.
These employees harvested 100 lbs. of vegetables, supporting 400 meals. (4 oz. veggie portion per meal.) The amount of weeding they did … priceless. Be sure to check out the photo below — literally a tractor-load of weeds!
