Many thanks for an incredible start of the season!

Wow, what a work party! We knew people were excited to garden, but certainly didn’t expect to have 27 people for our picnic lunch! With all the help we dug out the grass that has been growing in the wood of our terrace beds, weeded, edged, amended, and prepped several other growing beds, and harvested 19 pounds of kale, chard, and spinach. Not bad for a dreary February day!

The garden looks beautiful and the beds are ready to plant thanks to the amazing force of volunteers who came out to help yesterday. Thank you to everyone for caring so much for this project. Our party was a blast, and we had a great turn out for the afternoon tree pruning class. Stay tuned for more info on classes, and we’ll see you intrepid gardeners next Wednesday! A special thanks to Sarah Birger with Taproot Architects for teaching the pruning class.
