"Seeds of Evolution in the Garden and Us" - a reflection written by Jill Underdahl, CSJ.


We have discontinued our blog but will keep it archived. Read it to see how we've come to where we are.

In our eleventh growing season, the garden welcomes participation from students, neighbors, families, Sisters of St. Joseph and Consociates, and all who want to
  • learn organic/sustainable growing methods
  • enjoy healthy heirloom produce
  • build community with Earth and other gardeners
  • participate in a local food system
  • share the harvest
We garden two plots communally; sharing the work and the produce. Join with us on Tuesday nights from 6 - 8 p.m.

Spring Garden Gatherings:
  • Saturday, April 30, 10 a.m. - 12 – CSJ Earth Day, Prepare Garden Beds
  • Tuesday, May 17, 4:30 p.m. - Compost bin rebuild and helping Sisters with garden preparation
  • Tuesday, May 24, 6 - 8 p.m. – Plant in the Garden
For more information, contact Jennifer Tacheny at jtacheny@csjstpaul.org. To keep in touch, "like" us on Facebook, where we post updates, photos, and harvest totals.
