‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the coop…

Written by Ashley Patterson, WCG Executive Director

Not a single chick was laying and they feared talk of soup.
The hoop houses were sown with hardy roots and greens
In hopes that those vegetables could soon be healthy cuisines.

The fall leaves were added to the compost pile
To produce that black gold that makes us all smile.
The goats in their pens and the bees in their hives
Are patiently waiting for spring to arrive.

Our staff is stuck indoors but hard at work on our plans
Anticipating the fun of toiling in the soil with our hands.
It’s less fun than planting and sowing new seeds
But with careful thought we find it produces less weeds.

We hope you will support our efforts again this year unnamed2
As your gifts to our programs give us great cheer.
We can’t do this work without the help of our fans
So please give to us as generously as you can.

Happy holidays to you all and I hope to see you in one of our gardens in 2015!

Ashley Patterson
Executive Director
