Lots of Progress!

As I'm sure many of you noticed, there have been crocus flowers popping up all over Frederick. Crocus is one of the earliest flowers to bloom, and indicates that spring is just around the corner! This is exciting news. We had two great work days this past weekend March 14th and 15th. We accomplished a lot in a short amount of time. We got 3 rain barrels up, dug most of the trench for additional fencing, and laid out beds. As soon as the soil is dry enough to work, we can plant some cold weather crops like kale. Big thanks to everyone who came out to help. Special thanks to Mark Boggs of Boggs Environmental, who is donating soil testing services. If you couldn't make it out, don't worry, theres still lots of work to be done! I left a bulletin board up in the shed where we can post a To-Do List. If you haven't already, don't forget to sign a waiver and bring it to the next meeting, which is Sunday, March 22 at 3pm in the Trust Conference Room at the Library. We'll be officially electing board members.

Below are some highlights from the weekend



  1. Wow! Looks amazing. Can't wait to get in the dirt!
