A Great Day in the Gardens!
CAC Garden Days was a gorgeous day at Troy Community Gardens.  Gardens all across Madison celebrated together on the weekend of September 14-15.  At Troy we had cider making, cooking demonstrations of tasty Hmong food, tours of the land, kid activities and a truly terrific number of door prizes.  For a complete report from organizer Jill Schneider, click here.

You'll probably enjoy reading our CSA newsletter even if you're not a member of Troy Community Farm.  Our farmers write well, and you can find everything from recipies, to the future of food, to a sneak peek at what it means to be an urban farmer.  You might even increase your vocabulary, adding words like tomato-nado and headuce.

Check out this season's Urban Roots, generally posted Thursday mornings.

Join us on Saturday, August 17th at 9 am for an educational PRAIRIE WALK through our prairie at Troy Gardens. Along the way we will learn to identify prairie species and the individual roles they play in the community. We will discuss the important ecological functions of a prairie, what our prairie does for us here at Troy Gardens, and other beautiful prairie restorations across Dane County.

Meet Natural Areas intern Jason Kokkinos at the red sheds within the community gardens (visible from Troy Drive) at 9 am.  We will walk to the prairie together. The walk will be held in case of light rain, but will be cancelled in thunder and lightning. We hope you will join us!
