Jasmyn Alvarez, a Wedgewood Community Gardener, reflects on her first growing season in a community garden. She shares information about her goals, how she used the square foot garden method to achieve them, and the results of her efforts.
Though the days are short and the winter air is cold, TNFP garden participants are busy planning and training for the season ahead. Regular garden trainings with our Community Garden and Growing Together programs provides space for learning and knowledge-sharing.
In honor of International Women’s Day, we are celebrating one of the incredible women we work with in our community gardens. Ifeoma Scott and her husband have been growing in our Wedgewood Neighbors Garden since last year after hearing about it from their friends Jay and former Meals Assistant Makisha, or Kiki as Ifeoma calls her, at Mt. Zion Church.
