Gardening is hard work, but great rewards. At Hi-Crest Garden, well over 40 heads of cabbage were harvested, 5 gallons of broccoli and cauliflower, twenty bags of kale, and enjoyment of sunny blue skies, abundant rain and brilliant lilies and iris. This is just the beginning, we are expecting lots of cucumbers, squash, and tomatoes soon. We have at least 7 volunteer gardeners working every week for 8 hours mowing, hoeing, spreading mulch and putting up cages.

Here are some photo from a visit to the Trinity Lutheran Garden on a lovely spring day. The church recently installed a new irrigation system in their garden. The congregation does interesting work encouraging gardening in the local community.
Over the weekend, Washburn Tech donated over 1,000 plants to community gardens supported by Topeka Common Ground. We are thrilled with the outcome and pleased with our partnership with Washburn Tech.
The plant donations included broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and kale. A second give away will happen in early May. We estimate that the vegetables will feed 3,500 members of the Topeka community.
