Last week, on Tuesday November 17, many of Roosevelt University’s community gardeners were able to come together to partake in a potluck dinner at the Schaumburg campus. About ten gardeners were able to participate, providing delicious dishes like spicy Mexican soup, caprese toast bites, pecan-sweet potato casserole, sticky buns, and more!
This event was a fun opportunity for me and the community gardeners to learn from each other as we reviewed best practices, considered means of improvement, and recapped a lovely season of gardening. Although we’ve all been tending the garden regularly all summer long, some of us still got to meet other members for the very first time. Most importantly, this was a chance for everyone to connect and reflect.
(And for all the sustainability minded readers, we used real dishes. No paper or plastic!)
Thank you to everyone who participated in the dinner! For those who were not able to make it, thank you for a beautiful gardening season! We look forward to seeing you again next year.
