This week the Farm completed round 1 of fall planting. Kale, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, peas, favas, beets, garlic, and more are now out of the comfort of the greenhouse and into the world of wind, insects, and RAIN. Yesterday’s shower came just in time to give our new seeds and starts a wet welcome into the world.
Rainy days also means it is time to make tea. Join us on the Farm this Thursday for an Herbal Tea Making workshop led by Emily Hill. Did you know the Farm has an abundance of peppermint, lemon balm, lavender, stevia, and more herbs that make healthy-organic herbal teas? RSVP on our Facebook page to learn more about how to identify, dry, and brew.
This week is also our Compost Education Week at Frary Dining Hall. Not sure what you can and can not put in the bin? Stop by the Pomona College Organic Farm table in front of the dish carousel to talk to a farm representative about composting at Pomona- and ask any questions you might have about how compostable or non-compostable those leftover scraps on your plate are! Easy as a slice of vegan pie!
