The second garden social for residents and volunteers in the green oasis of the Soldiers’ Home occurred last weekend. The socials occur once a month and often feature recently harvested crops. Hot temperatures threatened attendance but a constant breeze and the shade of big trees provided respite. A new activity of sketching and identifying common weeds became the focus of this social. 2015’s growing season has drawn in new faces, young and old.
