Last Summer Meeting at the Community Gardens

Last night at our weekly community garden night, our garden families gathered together for one last time. With the last vegetables of the gardens ripening, this was the last formal meeting of our garden families. The families are still welcome to come back at any time to continue maintaining and harvesting their gardens.

The Wilmington Fire Department was gracious enough to lend one of their ladder trucks which allowed for aerial pictures from 150 feet above the gardens.

Instead of a cooking demonstration, there was a smorgasbord of samples which included favorites from other weeks such as lemon sage dip, cucumber dip, garden fresh salsa, blueberry zucchini bread, green tomato cake, and more.

The night ended with a short slide-show of pictures from over the summer and a presentation of awards to the families and mentors involved in the program.

Thanks to everyone involved, including the Wilmington Fire Department, with the Community Gardens for making it a great summer!
