A Taste of the Wedge Garden

The garden party was a total success! Thank you all for coming to get a taste of our harvest. Some of the tastings were zucchini muffins by “Serafina,” zucchini crust pizza by “Giovanna,”  tzatziki by “Apollonia,”  tomato mozzarella by “Rocco,”  babaganoush & hummus by “Jimmy & Lucia Mancini,”  Armenian cucumber salad by “Francesca,” fresh figs from our fig tree by ”Giovanni.”  We also made cucumber infused drink and rose water.  The cucumbers were from our garden, but of course not the roses.

Blue Mango Restaurant from Glenwood South was very generous with garlic naan, masala mogo, which is yucca, with tamarind sauce, and potato patties.
We would like to thank the Alexander Family YMCA staff & visitors, Grow & Share, Hillsborough CAC, Raleigh Community Services, Will Allen & family, Amy Witnyski & Marian, Dan Bagley & Family, Sue & Lyle, Vince & Wrenn Whitehurst, Jessica, George from Community Development, Julie & Paul, Lawson, Elizabeth Lane, Bridget, Giovanni and my unsung hero, Francesco, for joining us and making this party such a success.

At the Wedge, we are starting to plant another round of tomatoes. If you or anyone you know is interested in joining the Wedge Garden as a member, join us Saturday mornings to garden or email us at Help us grow and donate 200 lbs of produce to Plant a Row for the Hungry by year end. We also share our harvest with our members, sponsors, & food pantries.
Membership is super easy & a lot of fun. With $60 annual dues you are welcome to garden any day of the week.  The garden is open 7 days a week. Many of us garden Saturday mornings and some garden during the week.  We hope you will join the Wedge Garden!
