For those of you who haven’t seen the garden in the last day or two, it has been green-washed ! On saturday we transplanted the seedlings that had been started for us by Club Green at the high school which gives us a great start to a late season – we’ve got herbs galore, edible flowers, squash, cucumbers, cabbages and more!
We’ll be seeding on Tuesday evening at the Solstice Garden Party …5pm for the Official Garden Opening, and at about 5:30 we’ll start doing our seeding! so come on out!
We also finally have the rest of the parts (and an instructional DVD) to assemble our little greenhouse, so i’m looking for volunteers to help out with this (i’m useless with these things). I’m bringing the parts to the garden today (Monday) and there will be a group of people at the garden tonight between 6-8pm assembling the last of the wicking beds and doing some planting. If we could get the greenhouse up tonight, we could transplant our tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and more into it tomorrow!
Most of you have been in touch with Heather who is putting together a calendar for garden tasks – see her to sign up for a time that works best for you.
We also have a “Water Task Force” who are looking into innovative ways to capture rainwater for our garden.
May, Corey, Ryan and Chris are currently doing research and getting creative with water solutions, so if you have an interest in participating in this be in touch with that crew.
Anne, our resident potato expert has taken the lead of “Team Potato” who will be responsible for hilling, monitoring and otherwise tending to our prolific potato crop, so if this is something you’d like to be involved with, be in touch with Anne.
Thanks everyone for all your work…you are amazing!
