city square - back in action

It's spring and we are very excited about the beginning of a new season! We met the other day to check on the garden after a long hiatus. Our new volunteers Erica and Lawrence helped to weed and straighten out the trellises. erica and zlatko weeding

lawrence happy in the garden
the workshop on organic food gardening at CityFarmer has provided much food for thought ha ha ha (seriously, though - very worth taking!)
cob shed at City Farmer mmmm....cob....

we have updated our work list / wish list for this year:

  • line raised beds with plastic to help prevent rot-lawrence thinks he has some plastic hanging around
  • fill beds with soil and compost - lawrence is checking with his uncle to try to get some from his organic acerage
  • organize a cob-building workshop for a tool shed- vicky is connecting with mudgirls for this.
  • buy compost aerator - $10 from City Farmer
  • find someone who can help us make mosaic stepping stones
  • find a barrel to make a 'vat-o-spuds'
  • make sustainable, waterproof signs and labels
  • construct small wooden blocks to protect sprinklers in beds
  • find material for metal trellises (nylon mesh?)
