Growing Wandawega.We are grateful to friends who have helped us grow this little place. Over the years, weve had different folks at different times come through these gates, each contributing something that has helped this little camp grow into something bigger than us. So we are thrilled to share our latest contributor, @marshmcgann and her contribution: THE CAMP POLLINATOR GARDENWe partnered up with our long-time friend and co-worker Cynthia McGann to bring more color, bees & butterflies to camp. (The dream is that at this time next year, well have enough to keep our little flower cart stocked so that guests can make their own cabin bouquets from our own field.)Shes started with the hillside that our canned ham is perched on (were off to a good start – this crop will put on a show well into September) And now shes already working on plans for another extension. Her nearby starter plant production garden is already overflowing with strawflowers, zinnias, calendula, rudbeckia & sunflowers, and more – its so hard to pick what we want to feature next.My grandpa Schnepper (and avid life long WWII era gardener) used to say that: its not the garden, its the gardener. We agree. Cynthia is such an inspiration in so many ways : Food Rescuer, Master Urban Farmer & Executive Director at Good Worx Inc. And her new upstart: @flowerfarmstudios. And shes a badass:When shes not growing good through gardening, shes crisscrossing the country in her tiny Airstream trailer (shes already logged over 16K miles & hit 8 National Parks – in her first year of towing). But what is most impressive is her non-profit @sunnypatchproject : DuPage County’s first community garden to grow with and for at-risk families and local food pantries. Its produced over 9,500 lbs. of garden shares since 2015 learn more at GOODWORXINC.orgTo plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow Ms. Hepburn said, and we agree. Thanks Cynthia for helping us look forward to all the springs. We promise to keep up on the watering ..First pic @lori_seidemann
