Fried Green Tomatoes and More!
Aug 20th @ 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
A Hands-on Gardening Workshop
Tomato season is upon us. Learn about different types of tomatoes (we’re growing some awesome green ones here at MLK Garden!), good planting practices, and more. We’ll also check on our dried herbs to see how they are doing.
Before the lesson we’ll continue our bean, zucchini, eggplant, and herb harvest as well as check on our cucumbers.
Everyone is welcome. Feel free to drop in and bring your questions, tend the soil, and meet neighbors, whether weekly or whenever you can!
The mission of the MLK Donation Garden, located on the northern side of the King Park Building at 4055 Nicollet, is to connect neighbors and grow food for our community. Neighbors gather every Tuesday from 5:30-6:30 PM to tend the vegetables in the boxes at the northern side of the MLK Recreation Center and discuss a weekly topic. The food we grow in 2019 will be donated to The Aliveness Project (located at 3808 Nicollet), but the knowledge you go home with is yours to keep!
