GARDEN WORK PARTY SUCCESS!
Many thanks to all the volunteers who showed up on Saturday, February 4, for a morning of loving labor at the Davidson Green Schoolyard. We got a lot of things done. For example: we dug up fennel from the Riparian Zone:
Some of the roots were amazingly long:
We trimmed back the dreaded pampas grass:
. . . and carted it away to our junk pile:
Inside the Garden, we harvested and staked the fava beans, trimmed flowers, and transplanted the artichokes:
The compost was full of worms! We removed barrels of finished compost to fill the Garden beds, then organized the two bins into: a) nearly-done, and b) add-more-trimmings-here.
The tool shed needed organizing, too! So, Luat and Ashley spent the whole two hours clearing things out . . .
And putting them back in . . . with right-sized containers, and LABELS!
That wasn’t all. We had a great time doing it!
Thanks, everyone! See you next time: Saturday, March 3, 9:30-11:30 am at the Davidson Middle School Garden. (School address is 280 Woodland Avenue in San Rafael. We’re way in the back of the school, by the wooden bridge over the Riparian Zone.)
