With a new herb garden installed, plants in the ground, and a cover crop of buckwheat successfully sprouting in the back corner, the community garden has been progressing beautifully. On June 18th, we held our first work party of the season. Approximately 30 attendees helped plant herbs including chives, oregano, mint, and creeping thyme among others. After an hour of work, we had nearly all of our paths mulched, the rows of tomatoes prepared with straw to hold in moisture, and the rock floor of the greenhouse weeded. The event finished with a dinner including Oliveris pizza and a “potluck” salad to which community members added their own veggies and dressings. We are so grateful for the assistance and enthusiasm provided by the volunteers and look forward to inviting them back to the garden for another event in the near future!
