First off, thank you to everyone that came out! We couldn’t have done it without you. Despite the fact that it was record breakingly hot all day long, I think it’s safe to say that everyone had fun, and it was a great all-around experience. In less than six hours, we planted 324 trees and shrubs, 300+ groundcover plants, spread mulch and watered everthing! That’s quite an accomplishment.
Keep your eyes peeled for info on the next big workday. We’ll be at the garden working every weekend for the rest of June and July, with the exception of July 4th. As soon as we have all the info together, we’ll announce when the next tree shipment will be in. The next shipment should be our last for the current project, and should allow us to finish planting the rest of the property. And guess what? That shipment will be all of the fun fruit trees! Until then, there is plenty to be done! We have mounds and mounds of mulch waiting to be spread, and holes to dig and things to do to prepare for the next set of trees.

Our weekly garden meeting was tonight, and it went really well. We got a quick update from everyone, and then split into two groups. One group worked on organizing all of the logistics like volunteers, water, snacks, etc., and a second group focused on trees, placement and organizing how to go about the actual act of planting them. A lot was accomplished! Most of the logistics are taken care of and people are assigned specific tasks this week, to help get ready for Saturday. The only thing we are missing is volunteers! We haven’t had many people RSVP to let us know they’ll be there, so we don’t really know how many people to expect at this point. So if you are coming, bring a friend, and let us know!
We’ll have snacks and water available, and lots of different things for everyone to do!
