October 5th Bayview Garden Work Party – Thank You!

Happy October! This month got off to a fantastic start with a special Sunday work party in the Bayview Garden (Good Cheer’s satellite garden). We were thrilled with the turnout! About 15 members of the community showed up on a gorgeous Sunday morning to generously donate their time and effort to prepare this garden for winter, and help with some much needed maintenance.

Together under the sunshine we harvested the rest of the winter squash (220 more pounds, putting the total from Bayview this season at 370 pounds!), prepped beds to be cover cropped, pruned perennials, pulled an incredible amount of blackberry, and painted the shed. After only three hours we completely transformed this space.

Thanks to everyone’s help, the Bayview Garden is now fully cover cropped for winter, has two overwintering beet beds, and soon will have a bed of garlic planted. We cannot thank you all enough for your enthusiasm and support!
