this summer I've been working a little with Lori, a colleague here at Calvin, on a community garden she started. It's called Everybody's Garden located in Hudsonville area, and the primary intent is to offer a community project for the special needs young adults group (including Mel, her daughter), Ready For Life. So far things have been amazing; God has blessed all of us in so many ways through this simple little project.
Here's Mel watering with her makeshift sprinkler. this was at the very beginning, before Evergreen Ministries surprised us with their donation of a sprinkler system!
these are the most recent results from 2 days ago! the yellow ones are pear shaped and taste like no other tomato I've tried. Incredible stuff.
