The 2015 Outdoor Learning Programming kicked off the year on Sunday with more than 50 members and visitors. The opening program from our own Dudley Braun offered the basics in constructing raised beds from Redwood. The follow on program from perennial favorite, Lori Caldwell, offered tips on getting your garden ready for planting. If you would like to attend one of our Outdoor Learning Events, check out the “Events List” just to the right of this post and check back often for new listings.
Wow. 20 volunteers worked together at the garden on Saturday. We’re almost ready to plant. Come take a look!
Saturday, May 26, there will be a work party at the garden from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
We’ll be building a short bamboo fence around the large oaks (to discourage
folks from walking in an area which still has some poison oak.) And we need to attach
the newly installed rabbit fence to the main fence with small pieces of wire. Leah may
need help building some wooden beds in the southeast corner. And we continue to need folks to pick up the asphalt that is spread
throughout the site.
Please bring water, a hat, gloves if you have them, and sunscreen.
Come on. You know you want to be there. On Saturday, May 12 there will be a work day at the garden. Come on over between 9:00 AM and 11:30. We will be working picking up trash, spreading wood chips, building a straw wattle garden bed, and digging trenches for the rabbit fence. And take a look at the progress:
