It was mid-July when Bishop Jane came out to bless St. David's Edmonton Food Bank garden, and blessed it has been! This past Saturday, September 19, was harvest time, when we dug up an amazing crop of carrots and potatoes. Some of the tomatoes were ready for picking and others will stay on the vine a little longer as we are expecting some warm weather in the week ahead. This was truly a parish-wide endeavour from the beginning: from those who first dreamed of the project, those who shovelled soil into the raised beds, those who planted, those who watered and those who harvested. We are already making plans for next year's food bank garden!
