Penn State Master Gardeners of Delaware County is at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church

This week we bring you a Fall Virtual Garden tour featuring local gardens created with with the help of our Master Gardeners of Delaware County!

Here are pictures from the Chester Eastside St. Paul’s community garden, started four years ago. Delaware County Master Gardeners donated vegetable plants and assisted in early planning for the garden. The garden now includes nine raised beds and is cared for by the children involved in Chester Eastside’s after school program and summer camp.

These young gardeners accomplished much – created a thriving strawberry patch; produced vegetables for donation to the Chester Eastside Food Cupboard; created a butterfly habitat; kept student field journals of their learnings; successfully grown vegetables including swiss chard, kale, collards, cabbage, broccoli, carrots, beets, onions, herbs eggplant, tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers and more; and brought fresh produce home to their families!
