And then there were 12!

Yes, 12!  We have 12 beds available in the garden, thanks to an Eagle Scout project and our garden workday on September 20th – just in time for fall planting.

Here are some photos of our day:

Community Garden Workday Saturday Sept 20th – Come See Our Progress!

Happy Fall! We are getting ready for fall planting, and have some new beds installed just in time! A big thank you goes out to James Hynes, who completed his Eagle Scout project in support of our garden. James and his crew installed 5 new beds, cleaned out the demonstration bed, moved the leaf pile and created several new compost piles for us. In addition, they cleaned up the area so we could focus on planting – and it looks amazing!

New beds just need soil and they’ll be ready for planting!

We currently have 13 beds – 5 4×4, 5 4×12 and three 4×8. Soil will be arriving soon to fill these new beds, so we are planning a garden workday for 7a-11a Saturday, September 20th. We are getting an early start to stay cool. We will have water and tools available – come join us!

The Holy Cross ESL program started up Wednesday and gave us an opportunity to give the children a tour of our facility to include the garden. We got to sample some chili pequin (hot hot hot) and talked about our plans for the garden.  We can’t wait to get started!
