Beautiful cool weather is predicted for our upcoming garden workday, this Saturday, September 12th, from 8-10. Join us as we work to place the bases to our water towers, swap seeds, plant wildflowers, and discuss fall crops.
Our engineer and builder Scott Cherry has completed the stands for the new Water Towers. If you would like to add a tower to your plot, follow these steps.
1. Grab a stand and dig a shallow trench for the back legs and level.
2. After leveling, set the front legs so they rest on the wood beams of your plot. Use a drill and star bit (found on bench in shed) to attach the two predrilled screws to the beam.
Add a barrel, attach soaker hose, fill and you are done.
If all this seems too much to do in 106 degree heat…No Worries! We will be installing these during our Garden Workday, September 12.
Thanks again to Scott, Abdel, and for whoever installed a stand and water tower for me!
Our workday is this Saturday, August 8th, 8-10 am. If you have some large cardboard boxes, please bring them to the workday. We need to cover weedy areas with cardboard and mulch. Thanks!
Our next workday is this Saturday, August 8th, from 8-10 am. We will be getting some help from the Young Men’s Service League, and will talk about preparations for a great fall harvest! Come and join us to learn more.
Join us Saturday, July, 18th, at the garden for our Garden Workday. We will start a little earlier, 8 – 10am, to try to beat the heat. The plan is to harvest, clean, weed, turn compost, and swap seeds and stories. Also, we will meet and discuss plans for the garden. We will observe social distancing and wear masks. Bring a hat, and any seeds you have to give out. (If you don’t have seeds…don’t worry…we will give you some)!
Don’t forget to vote…on which workday you prefer July 11 or July 18. (See last post for more information).
