Shandra Barrett brought her team of Dominion Power customer service associates to the Lewis Ginter Community Kitchen Garden yesterday – including several who drove all the way from Norfolk. Dodging the threat of rain, Shandra and her seven teammates joined several other volunteers to harvest green beans and yellow squash, feed the zucchini and tomatoes, tie tomato vines to stakes and help continue our perpetual inspection campaign intended to eliminate squash bug eggs.

We’re working to become a 100 percente organic garden, and manual intervention (inspecting the plants for signs of pests) is an essential part of the process.
