We've been "spreading the love" of farm fresh produce here at the Downtown Teaching Farm for the past several weeks. In addition to feasting well as a group of community gardeners, we have made contributions of eggplant to Salt Tears Coffeehouse and Noshery, and heirloom tomatoes to Archie's Place.
We've gathered produce for donations to the St. Mary's Foodbank, Boise High families, and some of the new-to-Boise refugee families. We hosted our first U-pick Farm Day after school last Friday for the students and staff at Boise High, and are beginning to plan our tomato and melon taste testing at lunch next week. Thank you again to all of the gardeners, supporters, volunteers, and businesses who have helped contribute to a successful first season at the Downtown Teaching Farm!
