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.

Celebrating Rev. Cecil Williams today! Leave some well wishes for the Minister of Liberation in the comments! Better yet, wish him a happy birthday in person at #SundayCelebration this weekend! #unconditionallove #fromthearchives #thisdayinhistory #radical @glidesflegacy @shakasenghor @feliciahorowitz @dnwenig @zendesk @mrdannyglover @goapele @vbozeman @ebay_newsroom @sfchronicle @hoodline “My family had that sense about them, a sense of caring. Seeing people as they are, rather than as we would like for them to be. And so that melded in my soul and in my life. And my pathway and my journey has been to say: I’m gonna be inclusive.” —Rev. Cecil Williams

Today we wish a very happy birthday to Rev. Cecil Williams, GLIDE's beloved Co-Founder and Minister of Liberation.
