Garden Updates — 04/18/2019

Hello Gardeners!

We had a terrific start on our first workday on Sunday. We were able to begin repairing the fencing, and started cleaning up the beds and transferring new soil to the beds. Rich, Steve Z, The Lockhart family and Ben Mogoi were there to help with the efforts! Some raised beds needed some repairs. A big thank you to everyone that was able to help.

The Lockhart’s proposed a great idea for “Breakfast at the Garden” Saturday, May 25th, at 10AM. We will have breakfast and a great opportunity for fellowship and finding out what the garden is all about.
While the next scheduled work day is 5/4 (Saturday) @ 9:00AM, there is also a general church clean up day on 4/27. I encourage you all to lend a hand for an hour or whatever you can spare.
I wish you all a Happy Easter, and look forward to seeing you all soon!

Thanks,
Jason

Garden Updates & Work Dates

Hello Gardeners!

We had our first meeting. In attendance was Nicole L, Steve Z, Jaimee, Rich C., and Ben M. showed a little later. We talked mostly about clean up tasks, repairing the fencing, and idea for seed planting. If you have not let me know about your intention for your plot this year, please let me know. I will be reaching out to you.

We scheduled the first two workdays as follows:

4/14 (Sunday) @ 10:30AM – 1:30PM show up after service!
5/4 (Saturday) @ 9:00AM – Saturday morning.

I had delivered (today) 6 cu. yds of Mushroom Soil. This is about half of what we had last year. Primarily we will use this to top off the beds. For the upcoming workday we can focus on clean up and bed preparation. I will also get a spool or two of fencing. Does anyone have a reasonably hefty wire cutter they could bring?

* Also, 4/27 @ 9:00AM is a church wide work clean-up day, it would also helpful if gardeners can lend a helping hand to that effort, especially as there may be some general clean up tasks that overlap! Come for an hour or whatever you can do!

I started plants, tomatoes, peppers, and two varieties of squash. They are doing quite well. See pictures below!
Looking forward to seeing you all!
