Organic Garden Tour in Montclair

Pat Kenschaft of Montclair is inviting “Everyone and their friends” to her Open Garden next Saturday, September 23, 2006. Kenschaft is a Mathematics Professor at MSU and spends her spare time tending her garden, among other things. She has raised all of her family’s vegetables organically for over 25 years.

The Open Garden tour last spring was quite interesting and this falls tour looks just as promising. In her email announcing the Open Garden Kenschaft says, “This year's garden is different from others because of the wild rain, wind, and woodchucks. The garden isn't as planned as usual, but we are still eating feasts every evening.” Current crops include collards, kale, chinese cabbage, Malabar spinach, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, and climbing beans. Some of these will be harvested all winter.

The garden will be open September 23, from 2-5pm. It is located at 56 Gordonhurst Avenue in Montclair.
