At last! After a few false starts and many weeks of re-working scheduling and logistics internally and with the prison, we were able to send a group inside CIW bright and early this morning to check on the garden. All of Caitlin’s (our Summer Intern) hard work paid off in spades. In a quick walk through the garden, we found none other than this little friend awaiting our return:
As we continue to work through administrative details to get back to a regular schedule, we’re thankful for the wonderful new volunteers we’ve got along for the ride. More than 25 eager new gardeners are awaiting clearance – they keep our meetings lively and informative in the meantime, and we’re all looking forward catching up with the women inside and getting back to work planting and harvesting very soon!
