As promised in my last blog - we have news about our donated herbs for the Chefs program. Chefs (Conquering Homelessness through Employment in Food Services) is a six month program run by Episcopal Community Services that includes kitchen training in institutional and restaurant settings, job counseling, coaching, placement and follow-up. 75% of Chefs graduates acquire a place to live and employment thanks to the program. Today I delivered to the program dried herbs from the St. Aidan's and St. Mark's gardens - lemon verbena, sage, purple sage, marjoram, oregano, thyme, rosemary. Al Leddy, manager of the program, told me that he could take all of the herbs that we can grow - so we'll keep going! With many thanks to my fellow gardeners and friends Kris at the St. Mark's Garden and Betsy at the St, Aidan's garden who make all of this possible...
