The Tastes of Summer

by Lindsey Goldberg, Graze the Roof Project Manager

Tomatoes! Tomatoes! Tomatoes!

25 plants are happy, green and the fruits of our stewardship are hanging heavy and ripe from their fertile branches! Graze the Roof has tomatoes!

Please join us in our extended late summer-early fall volunteer hours of 10a-2p every Thursday to taste a tomato, turn the compost, build soil, container garden construction, weed, water, and experience the continued transformation of a rooftop into a thriving and abundant food system.

Integrating the GLIDE Free Meals Program  has been a part of the long-term vision of Graze the Roof since it’s inception. In recent weeks we have been retrieving coffee grounds from the Thursday morning brew to help heat our compost, as well as food scraps to feed the worms in the vermicomposting bin. These are steps we are actively taking in collaboration with the kitchen team to integrate these two food/community centers within GLIDE.

Last week, FYCC garden classes started up again. This season Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade as well as 3rd through 5th grade will all get the opportunity to spend time in the garden on a weekly basis! The youthful energy truly helps the essence of the garden to come alive!

And, don’t forget….

    Lindsey, Fantastic idea there really is no reason I think so – in fact I know so. We can have fresh fruits and vegetables without needing a great big yard or farm to have our own healthy foods. In fact, many people use simple pots on their patio to grow their own fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables or on their roof as you have stated. Along with being guaranteed fresh it’s also truly cost effective. Consider the cost to grow our own compared to what we would have spent in the market for organic produce? More than most can all spend right now. Any how if your readers would like more info on how to grow their own fresh produce have them check out this website http://organicfoodsforhealth.weebly.com/ And again FANTASTIC idea,take care.

Our Harm Reduction Team always needs people to help assemble safer injection kits. Distributing these kits to our community members who inject drugs greatly reduces the spread of Hep C and HIV. It's about #publichealth and recognizing the dignity and human rights of ALL people living in our city! #harmreduction #cleansharps
