July Workday: Rain, Sun and Shade

Our July workday started out with a tropical downpour but soon brightened!

From visitors from Cooper City to volunteers–first-timers and regulars–we had a great day weeding, planting papaya trees, and working on garden plots.  And don’t forget lunch served by Chef Brian!

And then the event of the day: Constructing the ‘hoop house’ for the food pantry plots!

Guided by Master Gardener Miguel Afonso, volunteers put together the shade shelter and covered it with a lightweight aluminate cover.  Shade shelters like this one will allow us to plant more delicate plants all year long.

Take a look at our slide show for all the details and watch this page & facebook for news on our August workday!
