June Work Party

A lot got done in the garden during the work party. New potatoes dug up, strawberries and currants tasted, herbs picked, weeds plucked, plants planted and watered. Keep your eye out for our next workshop on setting up a micro-drip system in the garden!

Saint Martin’s Learning Garden Party with Lynn Villella

Garden expert Lynn Villella says that “after the new moon is a good time for above ground crop planting.” Lynn will be leading another planting work party in the SMU Learning Garden during this post new moon week.

Come and learn about gardening from an expert, ask questions, dig in the dirt, plant some plants, check out our new greenhouse, find out what’s growing in the garden and taste some ripe berries. Have you ever tasted a red currant? Maybe you can get some strawberries too.

The Learning Garden is located just outside if the St. Gertrude Dining Hall.

Early Summer in the Garden

The garden overlooks the entire campus and makes for a great place to relax and see the world go by.
