The Lakeridge Elementary garden club is in full swing again, as students tend to 17 raised beds after school.

As the garden season starts to close, there is a lot of work to be done prepping garden beds for the winter, along with harvesting potatoes, carrots, herbs and more. There is a lot of digging going on, some winter vegetable planting and turning the compost bins.

Volunteers are still delivering vegetables to the Mercer Island Youth and Services food pantry and working to bring veggies into the Lakeridge lunchroom. Visitors are welcome.
