First work party of 2010 is on Martin Luther King Day

It’s our first year anniversary- we launched the Good Cheer Garden on the Martin Luther King Day of Service last year!

We spread composted manure, cleared out scruffy shrub trees on the garden edge, and dug out blackberry roots.

Now the garden is established, and it’s time to get ready for the upcoming season!

Come join us on Martin Luther King Day, on Monday, January 18th, from 10 am – 3 pm to:
* Install chicken wire around the bottom of the garden fence, together with the Inca Pride Alpaca 4H Club. Save our future carrots by keeping out the bunnies!
* Clean up and start terracing the hillside where the squash was
* Sort the Ed Hume seed donation by planting dates
* Clean up the compost area, and make compost with alpaca manure

There’s also lots of Martin Luther King Day gardening activity at the other community gardens providing produce to Good Cheer:

The Langley Middle School Garden work party is from 10 am – 2 pm: Help install the irrigation infrastructure.

The Bayview High School Garden work party is from 10 am – 2 pm: Help build a 3-bin compost system with pallets

Thanks for helping all the gardens grow!
