Farming doesn't have to be outside the city limits, it can be in your very own backyard or community garden.

When will they emerge? Is something wrong? Where are they?
THERE they are! Colleen, our Urban Farmer and gardening guru, was starting to fret (yes, even Colleen can get a little nervous!) about all of the tomato seeds she'd planted.

We're going to celebrate the harvest and feature the fruits of everyone's labor. We're really excited to re-unite with Urban Farmers who've taken the Urban Farming class with us, to hear all about gardening successes and failures, and share kitchen creations made with gardening goodies: pies, veggie casseroles, salads
We were given an apple press and we've saved some apples and pears to crush - bring apples for pressing and juice containers. We'll make juice to drink, and share whatever we have in excess.
RSVP, please, so that we know to expect you.
