2014 Kitchen Garden and Coop tour a Success!

On Sunday, the 2014 Kitchen Garden & Coop tour was a happening thing. The homes on the tour were packed with many people wanting to see some of the best kitchen gardens in Santa Fe and they weren’t disappointed.  The only thing disappointing was it rained just before it ended at 2 pm but rain around here is never disappointing and always a welcomed relief to our dry climate. So while many of you were scurrying back to your cars at the end of the tour,  your gardens were getting watered, courtesy of Mother Nature!

Thanks to our great sponsors-edible magazine who really helped get the word out, to Osuna Nursery who helped us out financially and to Joe’s Dining who came up with a fantastic lunch for the volunteers on the afternoon shift.

Also a huge thank you to all the volunteers who helped on Sunday and the homeowners who worked so hard to make their gardens beautiful and inspiring— it was an outstanding success. Many many thanks to all of them and to all the public who came out to support this annual fundraising community event. Here are some of the many highlights of the tour. PS-We will put more photos up as they come in…
