  • Hawthorne School Garden Summer Info

    The Hawthorne School Garden will be open this summer! Garden City Harvest staff have been working hard to prepare and plant the garden with spring vegetables such as peas, radishes, and spinach, as well as summer produce like tomatoes and cucumbers. We missed seeing Hawthorne students in the garden this spring, but we hope to see you soon! Families are welcome to visit the garden and take home veggies through the Adopt-the-Garden and Open Garden Hours programs. Due to COVID-19, new cleaning procedures and other measures will be in place to keep the community safe and healthy. We hope you’ll join us in the garden this summer!


    Weekly, beginning June 1st

    We are looking for families to adopt-the-garden each week of the summer. You’ll help by opening the garden for a couple of hours during the week, whenever it fits into your schedule. We encourage you to do some light weeding and harvesting. Some perks of the job: taking home free, fresh produce and enjoying the outdoors! 

    Interested? Great! Email School Gardens Manager Hannah Boe at hannah@gardencityharvest.org to sign up.

    Open Garden Hours

    Tuesdays 1pm-4pm

    June 23rd - August 11th

    School Gardens Manager Hannah will be in the garden every Tuesday afternoon this summer. Come visit the garden, help out, learn about gardening, connect with neighbors, and take home some fresh fruits and vegetables!
