Congrats, Garden Club!

Last night at the ECOS (Eckerd College Organization of Students) Givers Banquet the Garden Club was awarded Best Service Club Award, the second time we've been awarded this title in our 3 and half years as a club!

Oh, and did I mention we were on the front page of the local section of the Tampa Bay Times after our visit to the Green Thumb Festival last Saturday? 

Way to go, gardeners!
This year alone we've had over 90 volunteers, worked over 900 cumulative service hours, and have grown many, many sustainable fruits, veggies, herbs and habitat plants.
We just planted 11 native trees that will grow to provide habitat for creatures of all sizes and shade for future generations of garden-lovers.

Now it's time to celebrate Harvest Fest style!

Remember: A hand that's dirty with honest labor is fit to shake with any neighbor.
