Evening in the Garden 2018

Tuesday, August 14 was a rainy evening but that didn’t dampen our spirits as we celebrated our Evening in the Garden! We were pleased to welcome many familiar faces and a few new ones too.

In addition to food provided by the volunteers, there was an abundance of produce and flowers available for sale at the farm.

We were also very fortunate to have live music provided by the North Street Straw Band.

Members of the Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute were in attendance as well. We were fortunate enough to have them speak to us about Monarch butterflies. They also had milkweed plants for sale. Many of the people who purchased the plants are now reporting Monarch caterpillars!

As always, thank you to the Urban Farm community, staff, and volunteers for making this event a great success.
