Mornings at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in summer means you’ll hear the sounds of teenagers chatting between rows of Swiss chard & beets, cherry tomatoes & bell peppers. Teens, age 13-18, come work at the Garden despite the summer heat because they feel drawn to work in the Community Kitchen Garden — a large-scale gardening project that last year produced 12,454 lbs. of fresh, local vegetables to give to Central Virginia’s neediest citizens in 2012.

We’ve been having fun in the Community Kitchen Garden for sure. Brian Vick, the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden staffer who’s been running the project has been blogging away about our adventures growing 10,000 lbs. of fresh local veggies for the Central Virginia Food Bank & Meals on Wheels Serving Central VA. Brian also has a wonderful sense of humor. Here’s a photo he took of stockings providing support for the Sugar Baby watermelons that we are growing for FeedMore.
