Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and due to the fear of transmission of the virus, we did not work the garden in 2020 nor start it in early 2021 though the strawberries took care of themselves and knowledgeable passersby help themselves.
Carol Cross and Brenda Hattery have taken up co-management and hope to get the Jefferson bed up and growing for community harvesting in the near future.
Herbs Are Ready to Pick! Marjoram and oregano are ready to pick for your favorite dishes. There are scissors nearby that you can use to clip them.
Incredible Edible Mid -Peninsula joined forces with CATA and Whole Foods Redwood City that has come together into one gorgeous project. There is a beautiful mural painted along the back wall of Jefferson and Adams Street. Whole Foods then wanted a community garden to tie the whole project together. They asked Incredible Edible if we could plant the garden. There are two raised beds.
On the Adams Street side, we put in herbs including: rosemary, sage, holy basil, cilantro, chives, garlic chives, dill, oregano, marjoram and lavender. On the Jefferson Street side the raised bed has: swiss chard, kale, spinach, and three different kinds of lettuce. We completed planting in late September. The plants are starting to grow and we may allow the community to start picking sometime in the next few weeks, probably mid or late November 2017. This is a true community garden and we hope that people will stop by and help themselves. The plan is for everyone to take just a little bit at a time, that way everyone can participate and enjoy the community garden. We will update and rotate the vegetables and herbs as needed and with the seasons.
