Edible Woodland Pruning and Wrapping

Please join us for the last Natural Areas volunteer opportunity of the year!  We will wrap our delicate fruit trees and new plantings to protect them over the winter, and we'll prune the trees and shrubs in the Edible Woodland.

Meet us at the red sheds at 10:45 am this Saturday (November 16th).  Feel free to bring your own pruners and gloves, although we will have plenty of extras available for volunteers.  Don't worry if you are not experienced in pruning or wrapping - we will teach you!

We'll wrap things up (no pun intended) around 12:30 or 1 pm. Hope to see you this Saturday!

A Great Day in the Gardens!
CAC Garden Days was a gorgeous day at Troy Community Gardens.  Gardens all across Madison celebrated together on the weekend of September 14-15.  At Troy we had cider making, cooking demonstrations of tasty Hmong food, tours of the land, kid activities and a truly terrific number of door prizes.  For a complete report from organizer Jill Schneider, click here.

You'll probably enjoy reading our CSA newsletter even if you're not a member of Troy Community Farm.  Our farmers write well, and you can find everything from recipies, to the future of food, to a sneak peek at what it means to be an urban farmer.  You might even increase your vocabulary, adding words like tomato-nado and headuce.

Check out this season's Urban Roots, generally posted Thursday mornings.
