In July 2016 a soaker drip system has been installed in the main garden, sloped garden and three traffic islands. This will allow water to be distributed with minimal effort and more effectively than previously allowing water to be delivered to the root systems of individual plants minimizing the potential for diseases for each vegetable variety. Fortunately, the Lord has provided an abundance of rain during the last week and into this week so watering requirements have been/will be very limited.

Preparation of a user-friendly recipe collection has just been initiated to assist patrons of the Food Pantry in preparation of select vegetables grown in the garden. The first vegetable recipes will be targeted toward Kale.
