Lyme-Old Lyme Food Share Garden Hosts Open House This Morning; All Welcome

OLD LYME — On Saturday, Sept. 24, the Lyme-Old Lyme Food Share Garden (LOLFSG) is celebrating a successful, inaugural growing season by hosting the 2nd Annual LOLFSG Open House at the garden from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

All are welcome to drop by and learn more about the garden and how volunteers can help with many different aspects of the work involved.

The garden is located at Town Woods Park in Old Lyme behind the Field House and playground.

The LOLFSG recently celebrated another milestone when the garden reached a total donation threshold of more than 2,000 pounds of produce in its first growing season.

Jim Ward, LOLFSG President, commented, “This incredible accomplishment is due to the dedication of volunteers and community support.”

Ward noted that the realistic LOLFSG goal for the 2023 season is to double production and is already looking forward to a “Two-Ton Tuesday.”
