On Saturday, September 23, we celebrated the end of the Discovery Gardens season. It was a lot of fun for everyone! We had food and sweet treats and games for the kids.
Our yearly toad races were a big hit! Everyone won a race. The toads did great and were promptly returned to their homes after the race to relax from all of the excitement.
To end off the season with a bang, we all launched tomatoes as far as we could! The kids competed to see who could launch theirs the farthest. In first place, Jonas' tomato went 130'. In second place, Danny's tomato flew a whole 122'; and in third place, with a tomato flight of 110', Zachary! After the kids were done, the adults got to have fun launching the old fruit tremendous distances.
Discovery Gardeners will have one more week to finish harvesting the gardens before we prep the beds for winter. The last day for Gardeners to come out and pick up their deposits will be Saturday, September 30.

This past week, we got to take a little road trip up to Sanoma County to check out the 7th Annual National Heirloom Expo. While there we saw so many different varieties of fruits and vegetables all naturally and organically grown. It was a very inspiring and enlightening experience.
