Time to Garden!

Well, we have gotten the final approval for the garden location! We will put in a garden right next to the dining hall (see the images in the last post). This is a great location for a few reasons:

1. it is in the center of campus and easily accessible
2. it is right next to the kitchen
3. there are outdoor tables right next to the garden space
4. when you are in the garden, there is a great view of campus

We are very excited to begin the garden. If you would like to join the garden team, please answer a few questions here to let us know how you would like to participate and how we can contact you.

Right now the plan is to have Garden Parties every Wednesday 10-2pm. We will do gardening and have workshops in the garden. Our first Garden Party is next Wednesday, June 2 at 10am. We will lay down mulch and build raised beds. Come join us!

Garden Blessing and Dedication will most likely take place on June 16th at 10 am. More on this soon.

Let's plant a lot of strawberries.
