On Monday, Aug. 13, the Block Island Gardeners hosted a "Visit a Block Island Garden" event: a tour of Succotash Farm on Mitchell Lane. Gardener Amy Keeler opened her farm and led visitors around her large fields of vegetables, fruits, and flowers, all which are harvested for the twice-weekly Farmer's Market. Participants learned about Amy's sustainable agriculture practices, and also shared garden experiences and techniques being utilized in individual home gardens elsewhere on the island.
