Rose's flower

This summer’s teen crew and their leaders have left their mark on our Westminster School Garden. They were wonderful mentors for the young summer campers. They were willing to take risks and they worked hard. We will miss them and we hope they’ll rejoin us this fall for canning and preserving workshops we’ll be offering the community. Above is a photo of our wild flower garden taken by Rose, one of our teens. (She’s responsible for a lot of the photo documentation in the last few blog entries.)

We had two  summer campers, Jay and Conner, who learned a lot working side by side with our teen crew.
