Thursday Night at the Garden

Hello fellow gardeners!

I wanted to let everyone know that thanks to the generosity of Old Towne Historic Landscaping (Brad, Jared, & Matt), our garden site is now cleared, graded, and ready for tilling!

Last night Old Towne was nice enough to bring in a skid loader to carry away the piles of dirt and rocks, scrape and dig out weeds and roots, and level out the entire site. Those who attend the work days this weekend will be amazed! Hopefully we will be posting some pictures today or tomorrow on the blog for all to see.

Hillary also brought out a huge pile of mulch. Thanks Hillary!

Thanks again to Old Towne Historic Landscaping and our garden members Hillary, Brad, & Matt (and Jared, who is not a member but operated the machine for three hours straight in the cold last night).

A few extra notes:

  • BOARD ELECTIONS AT THE NEXT MEETING! (Be expecting a detailed email from me today or tomorrow)
  • We will need more mulch, and we need to start with rain barrels SOON so if you have barrels or equipment to donate, we now have a lock on the shed and we can store everything you bring.
  • Tasks for Saturday and Sunday include: Digging trenches around the fenceline, continuing construction of the dry-stack wall for our compost bin, laying out plant beds, moving some leftover dirt and rocks, and tilling the soil (if you have a tiller, bring it with you this weekend).

Hope to see you all tomorrow or Sunday!
