Thank you to so many volunteers who came out last Sunday to put plants in the ground!
Starting Saturday afternoon, Elaine & Guy marked out all of the beds, hung the twine (for some vertical gardening experimentation), labelled all of the spots, and made sure we'd be ready to go!! (thank you!)
Starting on Sunday morning, at 8am, James and Dennis finished up two of the remaining four beds
(THANK YOU TO BOTH OF YOU - FOR ALL OF YOUR MANY, MANY HOURS OF CONSTRUCTION).
We then transported all of the plants from Elaine's house
(she started many of them from seed!!) down to the site.
Thank you to Angela and the Garden Gate crew as well as Paula Rubinson for starting seeds for us & donating many of our plants!! We really appreciate this!
Volunteers started arriving around 10 am and continued to join us throughout the day.
We planted, watered, shoveled and wheel-barrowed dirt, built rock walls, constructed more beds, got sunburned, constructed vertical garden twine apparatuses, drank water (thanks Shelaigh), and finally headed home at around 4p.m.
Thank you all for your energy & support.
