It's been cold and clammy, wet and rainy, but at last it's looking like planting weather! We have two garden work days coming up, and all are welcome!
Tasks include moving 3 yards of light compost and raking the beds, planting veggie seedlings and seeds, and planting herbs and flowers. Bring work gloves if you have them; tools and extra gloves will be on site, too.
WORKDAY ONE (Weather Permitting)
Wednesday, May 29th 3:00-6:00 CANCELLED (conditions too wet to plant)
WORKDAY TWO (Tentative, weather permitting)
Saturday, June 1st 10:00-11:30 (Fingers crossed, conditions will be ok!)
To make room for the expanded Community Center at Hillcrest, the garden had to move... and it's in a great spot now with wider paths between the beds which have new cedar planks, lots of soil and compost, and barrels out front with flowers to encourage pollinators to visit. There are chairs and benches to encourage neighbors to stop and visit, too. We are grateful to the DeFosses family and State Manufactured Homes for their generous support.
