Share and Learn Gardens
Update from Cheryl VanDeusen
Since we last met to clean up the beds on May 7, John Oberlin and Mike Cox rebuilt the herb bed (picture included). Eric Mars will add an irrigation system. We no longer will need to worry about watering pots! This ultimately will save both volunteer time and the cost of water. They also recovered the row covers with new agribon fabric.
The majority of the produce grown in this garden comes to Heart to Heart so we may give it to our clients.
