Planting for all!

In the Spring of 2024, students in the CAPS collaborative program at MWCC got their hands dirty planting in our elevated raised beds. The beds were constructed by a student in the regenerative agriculture program, and the design is ADA compliant so that everyone can be involved in the growing season. Keep an eye out for zinnias, marigolds, and dwarf sunflower varieties this summer!

Sofrito Workshop

At the end of summer 23’, staff members Luz Lopes and Gloria Correa taught community members about the history and significance of cooking with sofrito in many Latin American dishes. They used fresh culantro, cilantro, onions, garlic, and peppers grown in the greenhouse along with other herbs and spices to prepare sofrito, and assist everyone with making their own.
