As the new Garden Educator at Buford, I would like to introduce myself to those of you I haven’t gotten the chance to meet, and to let you all know a bit about what has gone on in the garden since June. After a little garden maintenance and planting new summer vegetables (see photos below), we began working in the garden with Boys and Girls Club’s summer programs and Parks and Recreation’s summer camp at Buford. The students helped plant new garden beds, search for ground cherries, and harvest potatoes and chard. Here is a look at the exciting changes to the garden this summer:
I would like to thank you all for supporting the garden at Buford. I feel so fortunate to get to work with you all over the course of the year!
