Last month, I visited the Lynndale greenhouse & garden which is located on Eisenhower Drive in Augusta. Lynndale offers vocational training services for those intellectually or developmentally challenged. The vegetable garden has many tomato plants, cucumbers, zuchinni, okra and a few stalks of corn. The tomato cages were blown over during the last storms here in Augusta, but wildly producing tomatoes despite the lack of support. LOTS of cucumbers. I picked a few for myself and a friend interested in pickling them.
There are many fascinating plants inside the greenhouse. I immediately noticed the robust herbs: rosemary, thyme, chives and oregano.
Many colorful varieties of sedum alongside healthy bright green bird’s nest ferns.I picked up a “Maid in the Shade” Sweetshrub for 10 bucks and one robust bird’s nest fern.
The greenhouse/garden is not a money making venture, but simply a means of teaching the skills necessary to manage a greenhouse and a garden. The profits from plant & veggie sales go right back to the management of the project. If you are in Augusta , take a half hour to visit the Lynndale, Inc. Ralph Levy Greenhouse. See you. ML
