Community Garden Build

The dust has settled after Saturday's hugely successful garden build and we are still overwhelmed by the amount of community support for this project. Thank you to everyone who gave part of their weekend to make this garden a reality. Gardeners will be getting calls in the next few days with bed assignments -- soon we'll start seeing green, growing life in all these beds!

Volunteers worked hard to assemble beds, cover them with gopher wire, put them in place, and fill them with soil. Complex logistics were key to the success of the day and Connor Caldwell, a VISTA member with the First 5 Service Corps, did a great job keeping everyone busy and on-task.

And what soil it was! Eco Nutrients delivered 60 yards of high-quality enhanced dirty fines and volunteers brought enough wheel barrows to deal with that mountain, one shovel-full at a time. The Wellness Center Garden will provide space to grow, play, and exercise for years to come. Thank you to everyone who provided time, labor, materials, food, and expertise to making this a reality.
