Here come the rains...

Halloween was our last market! Thank you to everyone who has come and supported us over the season. For most of us on the team, this was our first year with the EGP and we were completely blown away by how many community members came and visited us week after week. We're sad that the markets are finished for now, but we're already looking forward to next year, and can't wait to see familiar faces!

We also want to thank all of our amazing volunteers who helped us throughout the season. While our Thursday evening volunteer sessions are over for the season, volunteers are still welcome on Tuesdays between 12pm and 3pm. Go to our website to sign up for volunteering, and be sure to dress for the weather!

 Always Growing,

     - Claire, Michael, & Haydn

Winter Growing Tips

If you've been to Loutet Farm lately, you might have noticed the growing piles of leaves that have been accumulating. We're stockpiling this free and wonderful resource, and encourage home gardeners to do the same! Now is the perfect time to cover any bare soil in your garden with leaves, which helps to protect the soil from erosion, and reduces leaching of nutrients that happens when we get heavy rainfall. Spread a thick layer between winter plants (perennials, winter brassicas, root crops) to help moderate the soil temperature and protect your plants from frost. If you've got extra leaves, hang on to them - they will be useful for adding a second mulching in December or for next summer.
