Some catching up to do with the website, but things have been busy at the garden since March. Lisa organized area middle and high school students to come out for a week of community service hours in April. They mulched paths, assisted with transplanting blueberry bushes, currants, aronia and Nanking cherry bushes, weeded and generally helped get the garden ready for spring planting. Thanks to all the students that helped!
In May, there was another community service day by SK High School students, and boy did they go to town! A small mountain of wood chips was spread, new rock borders were created for the blueberry beds, and raised bed boxes were built for squash in the orchard area at the west end of the garden. Words fail to express our appreciation for all of the labors of love. The place was looking great.
