Grand Opening Celebration Pictures

Amidst 25 mph winds (gusts were DEFINITELY stronger!) and below a clear blue sky, over 60 people gathered on the Edible Skyline rooftop today to celebrate the opening of CORE/El Centro's rooftop garden.

A group of volunteers came earlier in the day to transplant tomatoes, peppers, onions, tomatillos, strawberries, marigolds, zinnias, basil, mint, sage, parsley, cilantro and 1 squash!

We had an abundance of gardening resources and information, including the opportunity to try out some adaptive garden tools (for those with arthritis or wrist injuries).

The rooftop is officially open for the public 5 hours a week - Monday 3:30-4:30, Tuesday 10:45-12pm, Wednesday 8am-9am and 5pm-6pm, Thursday 5:30-6:30pm.  Stop by and see our plant progress, sit and read a book or ask our on-staff Garden Ambassador if they need a hand!
