• Potluck & Dr. Bonzo!!!!! Thursday, May 19, 6-8 pm

BDuring our kick-off week we had arranged to have Dr. Bonzo come out and speak but we had a rainy, crummy day and decided to reschedule.  So next week Thursday Dr. Bonzo will be coming to the garden to talk about “Food and Gratitude” from his new book coming out in August on Wendell Berry. Dr. Bonzo is the Professor of Philosophy at Cornerstone University and also runs Small Wonders CSA with his wife and son.  He is the co-author of the book “Wendell Berry and the Cultivation of Life: a reader’s guide”.  We look forward to hearing his inspiring words amidst our journey to grow good food.  We will also be having a potluck so bring a dish to pass, blankets, utensils and a beverage.  We may even have a bonfire and roast marshmallows!! This is an event you won’t want to miss. No work day.

  • Picnic in Wilcox Park
The Eastown Community Association will be hosting their annual “Picnic in the Park”.  The picnic will take place at Wilcox Park and the Barefoot Victory Garden will be there handing out flyers and talking about organic gardening.  Stop on by for some info and some hotdogs.
