Short days and frosty nights have finally claimed the garden for this 2019. We managed to extend our Thursday markets into October this year, but will not be hosting a market again until spring. We would like to a offer a huge "Thank you" to everyone who made it out as a volunteer to support the harvest, who spread the word of the work we do, or who came out and made donations to PUF.

Working into the darkness, we made a final harvest for volunteers and to give back to the community.  Multi-cultural Health Brokers and the Grocery Run program came out to help with the harvest and received a large donation of produce to support the communities they work with.It's always special having someone dig a potato or a carrot out of the ground for the first time.

Our regular volunteer sessions are continuing for now. Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30 pm to sundown, and Saturdays 1-5 pm.  There is a lot still to do in getting the garden cleaned and put to bed for winter. And, if you have been out volunteering this year and missed your bag of potatoes, or a pumpkin for Thanksgiving, come along this Saturday and we will have some out that we have been storing away from the frost.
