Community Garden Updates

submitted by

Yes, we know the garden still doesn’t look much like a garden, but it’s on it’s way!

Last week we got “rock column” drains in the raised beds to prepare for more rain and approved a new soil mix for the top 10 inches of all the gardens that will help our plants flourish.

This week’s happenings:

-Student communal garden plots being creatively planned and planted on the south edge
-Prairie plantings and apple trees installed on the west edge
-New soil added to all beds
-Gardeners finally planting beginning Wednesday!!

Stay tuned for updates on special events, and feel free to come out and wander through the garden, thank all the landscaping crew for their overtime work these last couple weeks, and meet some gardeners!

If you have extra rhubarb, raspberries, strawberries, herbs, or vegetable starts that need a new home, you can drop them off on top of one of the benches in the garden and we will find a good spot for them.
