Tomorrow (Fri., 6/12/2020) morning at 11:00am we will be having a tree dedication ceremony in honor of Katherine Barratt, volunteer extraordinaire and one of the founding mothers of Edible Brattleboro. Please join us for this tribute in our the garden at the Brattleboro Food Co-op
Immediately following, we will plant a "guild" around the peach tree we planted in her memory. Just as humans have guilds (groups with common interests that gather together to support each other), a plant guild is a collection of plants to provide a variety of services for a tree or to support each other. It seems fitting to teach about guilds as we commemorate Katherine, who was dedicated to her work as an educator, and a member of many "guilds," helping others. And so we honor her legacy as an educator by offering a learning experience as we gather around her peach tree.
