Last friday, in honor of our beloved education intern, Katherine "K-thron" Collins' last day on the job, the entire Youth Garden crew went on a garden tour of DC. On the list we had City Blossoms' Marion Street Garden, Beet Street's (soon to be found online here) garden atPathways to Housing (at which a Cuban-themed celebration organized by program participant Georgina was ongoing), Commongood City Farm, The Neighborhood Farm Initiative, and theEngaged Community Offshoots farm in Prince George's County, MD. Unfortunately we did not make it out to ECO, on account of a combination of transportational apprehension and an unforseen flooded basement. Nonetheless, great times were had - we sampled melons at more than one stop, made mobiles out of wire and junk, wore cowboy hats and varying hues of green, smiled profusely, and we even learned some things. Photographic evidence ensues.
