RUrbanPioneers Harvest Season Ends with the First Frost

The RUrbanPioneers Community Garden wrapped its second season this week with the first frost. Gardens tended by Food2You were particularly successful, with vegetables served on campus in soups and recipes all summer long. The garden also provided rich learning experiences for preschoolers attending Bright Horizons Early Childhood Education Center on campus, and for adults who tended container gardens at the Institute for Continue Learning at Roosevelt University (ICLRU).

Individual gardeners simply enjoyed the flavor of fresh tomatoes, herbs, squash, cucumbers, zucchini and peppers. They spread the wealth, too, with a generous October donation of 120 pounds of fresh veggies to the Hanover Township Food Pantry, which serves 1,000 area families per month.

See you next year gardeners!
