Thank You to our Hamilton Helpers!

We are grateful to our Hamilton garden volunteers!

We had a few volunteers help out with maintenance and harvesting at the Hamilton School Garden last week. They did a wonderful job and we had a great time enjoying the sunshine. We appreciate all your hard work!
We are also excited to welcome the Hamilton students back to school this week! We are looking forward to continuing their education in the garden during the school year.

Hamilton/SOTA needs your help!

The school garden located at Hamilton/SOTA is growing well and we’d love to get children and families involved! Please join us for some group garden work and harvesting on Wednesday!

July 12th 9 a.m.-11 a.m.

We will have the sliding gate nearest to the garden open so you may enter there.

*Please note:  Construction on the playground is still in process, so there will be limited access to the rest of the playground and volunteers will be asked to stay in and near the garden.

Wear work clothes, bring work gloves and a bag/container if you are interested in bringing some produce home.

If you are considering joining us on the Wednesday mornings, please click the register button below so we know how many to plan for! We will also be adding a weekly harvest night starting in August.

We are also looking for volunteers to come on their own time on Mondays and Thursdays throughout the summer.  Please sign up on the link below if that is something you are interested in doing.

Please feel free to pass along the information to others as well and on school Facebook pages.

Fundraiser – Join Us

This Friday, July 14th



Sara Kujak of Driftless Skincare (formally Not Your Mother’s Apron) will be selling natural products at JavaVino while you can enjoy a drink.

20% of soap sales and 25% of all other sales will be donated to GROW to put towards a water source at a new lot.

Help us kick off this project. See our Facebook page for more details.

Seeds for Success dinner

At the end of each Seeds for Success camp, children get to show their parents what they learned during their week at the Co-op and Deep Roots Community Farm. With the help from counselors, the first set of campers made a tasty shepherd’s pie, homemade hummus, and strawberry rhubarb crisp from scratch. Most of the fruits and vegetables served were fresh from the farm. Seeds for Success gave kids a full farm to table experience and introduced them to new recipes they can make at home.

Seeds for Success will also be hosting another camp later in the summer, and another dinner will be held at the end of the week on August 24th. If you are interested in attending, contact Jamie at
