We kicked off the fall semester with our annual event, Gazpacho in the Garden on August 25th. Just shy of 200 people attended and enjoyed a fun evening. There was great local food, garden tours, live music, and raffle prizes!
The day before, two crews of students made Gazpacho, a cold tomato and cucumber soup, for Friday’s meal. Many local businesses donated food and drinks to provide a wonderful buffet dinner. Local band Sorority Boy shared good music and we could not have asked for better weather. Thanks to everyone who attended or volunteered!

Today, the fall CSA season began! We are excited to be distributing our produce on campus this semester, in front of O Hill Dining Hall. In addition to serving as a CSA share pickup spot, the MKG table offered tomato tastings to students and information about the garden. Stop by on Friday afternoons from noon to 2pm to say hi and to try a sample of produce your fellow students are growing.
Happy eating, Steph Meyers, MKG farm manager
