This past Saturday, around 10 of us went out to the garden for our FIRST work day!
Kathy Weigel from Church of the Ascension generously rented us a tiller to till up a small "cold weather" plot...where we can plant veggies that do well in cold weather, like lettuce, kale, other greens, cabbage and broccoli. After tilling up a small patch we spent the rest of the morning clearing the patch of the wheat that was planted there previously...almost filling up our whole compost bin!
We'll have the rest of our land tilled up early this week by the generous folks at the facilities department of St. Mary's College and then we'll be ready to make beds, paths and start planting!
I'd also like to immensely thank the several folks who have donated seeds and seedlings as part of our Seed Donation drive:
-the McCoy family of Good Samaritan Lutheran Church, who donated lots of seed packets!
-Leon Dean of St. Cecelia's Church, the owner of New Beginnings Farm in St. Inigoes, who donated two flats each of well grown cabbage and broccoli
-Kathy Weigel of Church of the Ascension who donated lots of seed packets!
-Anita Goehringer of Good Samaritan Lutheran Church who also donated lots of seeds!
Look for pictures and more work day announcements soon!
