Weeding and Seeding with the afterschool Beacon

On May 20, 2010 the Western Addition Beacon after school youth weeded out their plots and dug for worms, as well as gathered seeds from vegetables that had run their course.

Imagine our surprise when we uncover delicious potatoes!

Lina Ortiz joined us for the afternoon and then went off to visit her family in Columbia the next day!

We also gathered eight of our biggest artichokes and brought them to the Hayes Valley Community Room to cook.  Most of the kids had never had artichokes before. A good deal of ranch dressing made the artichokes taste delicious!

It was a great day to work with these lovely children. We hope to come back another time.
