One of the things we've started at Desert Marigold School is an annual event to celebrate the garden. Our second annual Mad Hatter Garden Tea Party is coming up on February 22 and we're really excited about it. We're very fortunate to have a wonderful local business sponsor working with us - Wisdom Nectar Tea - and one of the activities we'll be offering is tea blending using some of the herbs we grow in the garden. It's made a big difference for us to realize that in addition to inviting our community to come work in our garden, it's really important to invite our community to come play and celebrate - and eat! - in the garden. We're specifically using the event to help raise funds for an outdoor kitchen that will be able to support a whole host of other community events.
