Thank you to everyone who came out to the work day on Sunday!

We had some trouble getting the weather to agree with us on a date, but once we finally settled on Sunday the skies were clear, the temperature was up, and we had an amazing turnout!

We had quite the list of improvements to get through, but with so many volunteers, I think we got it all done. (Many more jobs were done, and the folks pictured did more than you see here. This is just a smattering of what I caught people doing).

Justin hauled away the wooden frames that were looking worse for wear.

And Norma and Ken built new frames to replace them.

Holly spread chips. The huge pile of chips by the gate was gone by the end of the day, and the paths are looking good.

Will, Laken, and I sorted the tangle of tomato cages in the shed. It’s a job that challenges the sanity of even the toughest gardener, as you can see in Will’s face.

It’s looking nice up there, now! Who knew this room had a floor? If you need a tomato cage, help yourself, but please try to keep it neat.

The perimeter garden looks amazing. I don’t know who did it, but thank you! It’s beautifully weeded and mulched.

It was a hugely successful day. The community spaces are looking clean and ready, the plots are starting to look green, and I have it on good authority that we picked up some very promising new gardeners. Thanks again to everyone who came out! It’s going to be a good season!
