Teen Solar Night

Hi friends,

On Wednesday October 7th from 7PM to 8PM we are having a Solar Workshop at the Hub!

We are teaming up with SunCommon, a mission-driven solar energy company based out of Waterbury Center, to learn more about the clean energy future. You and your parents are invited to the workshop to make the decision to go solar together as a family. Everyone has the right to a healthy environment and a safer world- and clean energy is where that starts. SunCommon has made it easy and affordable for all Vermonters to go solar, and that’s what R.J. Adler, SunCommon’s Addison County Community Organizer, will tell you more about during the workshop. You can play a big part in helping your family save money and go solar!

Again here are the details:

SunCommon Community Solar Workshop:

It’s All Just an Experiment

June Garden

Putting seeds into the ground is always very exciting but also comes with a bit of mystery. Knowledge and understanding can only go so far when it comes to plant life. Weather changes, pests, and other factors make a plant’s entrance into life a journey like no other. That being said, when fruit begins to grow and herbs are plentiful, one cannot help but feel relief and joy. The Hub Garden Project is on a brink of a grand abundance. Despite the challenges of the rain and weeds, the garden is filled with abundant harvest. Coming this Thursday The Hub Garden Project will be hosting a cooking project using the harvest. On the menu is ratatouille flatbread pizza using eggplant, peppers, summer squash, and herbs from the garden. In addition, participants will be making salad with fresh greens and ranch dressing with fresh herbs from the garden. Considering it is barely the second week in July, The Hub Garden Project is elated about the results of this years experiment.

Food is Growing

There is something so satisfying about seeing plants emerge from the soil, especially when our local youth got their hands dirty to make it happen. A couple of weeks ago, the Hub Garden Project was lucky enough to be joined by five elementary school students from Addison county .  All of the youth respectfully stood in a line and placed seeds in a row, each one spaced apart about the length of the kiddos pointer finger. The youth asked questions in an effort to place the seeds with precision.  The result of that effort can be seen in the image above. Can you identify that two week old seedling? SUGAR PEAS! Thanks to local kiddos, The Hub Garden Project is going to have plenty of these peas to share in June.

Keep following the progress in the garden folks. Also, don’t hesitate to send your friends and family of all ages to get their hands dirty to help grow food for the community in Bristol with The Hub Garden Project.
