Watering Meditation

Watering the garden is a meditative way to start the morning. You stand patiently among the plants and watch the earth soak in moisture. While we wait for facilities to set us up with a more convenient water access, we've devised an irrigation system with soaker hoses and and watering cans. If you would like to take on a day to water the garden, let us know. We'd be happy to add you to our schedule.

Garden Visitors

Yesterday we seemed to have unwittingly hosted new visitors in the learning garden.

Now the garden is finally looking green, the deer have come to get in on the produce.

Our potato bed has started flowering, fortunately this does not seem to appeal to them.

Sadly, the strawberries were not so lucky... The deer have good taste.

One of today's project-- finishing painting our new table and workstation.

So that's what's going on in the garden. Thank you to everyone who have been following us here on the blog, and volunteering your time in the garden helping to keep it green, beautiful, and running.
