Rogers Farm Demonstration Garden - Maine Harvest for Hunger
What do you want visitors to learn from your garden? I hope people will learn that planting veggies is pretty easy and very rewarding. I feel as though it should be called Harvesting for Humanity. I does my heart good to be able to bring so much fresh produce to our local food cupboards!
What is your favorite section and/or plant in the garden and why? Eggplant. A child visiting the garden exclaimed “I love eggs!” when someone pointed it out. Although I don’t eat a great deal of it , I find harvesting it to be like a treasure hunt- finding those shiny purple globes hidden in the shelter of it’s leaves.
What do you enjoy most about volunteering at Rogers Farm? I enjoy the peaceful surrounding,working with kindred souls and perpetual learning.
