Saturday evening Joel and I met up with our friends, Will and Naashom, at Devou Park in Covington, KY for a World Choir Games concert that performed in tandem with the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra. Both a Norwegian youth choir and a more classical Ukrainian choir sang, partially with the KSO and partially a capella. We sat behind some of the parents & family members of the Norwegian choir. Honey in Northside. It was very delicious and lovely to spend the morning with friends. I was also really impressed with the interior design and decorating, it's pretty much exactly how I would make a café if I had the opportunity to do so (warm woods, grey walls, natural lighting, botanical illustration prints).

I have officially been at my job for a whole month! Time seems to be flying by, almost too quickly. As I mentioned before, I will be highlighting a couple gardens at a time. This week I will be highlighting the CCAT (Center for Chemical Addictions Treatment) garden and Gorman Heritage Farm. The CCAT garden was looking a little sad when I first started, not from neglect but simply as a matter of it being early in the season. Now it looks voluminous and fertile. The produce from the CCAT garden goes to the CCAT cafeteria kitchen. Today we picked 5 lbs of zucchini! CSA that they provide vegetables for. In addition to the CSA they sell meat, eggs, honey and vegetables to the public. This is the children's garden. It has a lot of sensory-education plants (even a plant that folds up like a sea anemone when it is brushed!)and small beds.
