Blue Devil Garden's First Tomatos
This will be the TAG Team's third harvest (Teen Advocacy Group at Calais MIddle/High School in Calais, Maine), and the first without a large group of students tending it during the summer. The impact of this year's grant has landed mostly upon the outgoing student advisor, the individual who helped the student founders establish the garden three years ago. The garden schedule revolves around a late planting to provide the bulk of the harvest after Labor Day when the school year begins.
As a care taker, the former advisor is preparing to pass the garden to the next class of students and their new advisor. It is a privilege to care for the land and produce food for those who can't and to supplement the students' lunch program. It will be the privilege of the new TAG Team and their adult partner to distribute the beans, carrots, tomatos, squash, cucumbers, and lettuce to the local food pantry and the school's cafeteria. It will be their pleasure to share the late season cut flowers that will grace the desk's of the schools support staff come fall.
