Garden Coordinator Mark Marshall enjoying the off season in Hawaii….

Mark Marshall and wife Sandy like to vacation in Hawaii once gardening season ends. They enjoy the ocean and time on the beach. Sandy says it’s a great time for Mark to really relax….until he spied a church garden that needed some weeding last week.
Mark, hope you are enjoying your time away!

Looking back at last season – over 11,000 pounds donated!

This annual guide is a summary of currently suggested vegetable varieties, seeding rates, fertilizer rates, weed control, insect control, and disease control measures for commercial growers.
We think it also may be of some interest to organic gardeners and small farmers.
