🤗Regular Work-Days Have Begun! 🛠
Thanks to a crew of farmhands who have volunteered over the past couple of weeks, the garden is looking in fantastic shape, and is primed for a great growing year. Thank you to all who have already contributed to this effort!
We’ve only just begun, so there will be plenty of opportunities in the future to contribute to the stewardship of the garden. Starting April 28th you will be able to join us every Wednesday 6-7pm, and every Sunday 3-5pm (work days will be canceled when there’s inclement weather) to water, weed, and maintain everything.
Over the next several weeks, we’ll be watering, weeding, and monitoring the emergence of our seedlings. We’re still waiting on a delivery of woodchips, so once they arrive, we will be spreading them around the trees and the garden to suppress weeds. There may also be an opportunity to paint the newly built and planted herb beds, so stay tuned!
The city’s current guidelines regarding public gatherings allows for up to 50 individuals at a time. In pre-pandemic times, the garden averaged 13 visitors per work day, so we will not be asking volunteers to sign up for work days ahead of time, just to wear a mask and stay home if you feel sick. 😷✌🏾
