April 18 was the first official work bee for 2015. We welcomed about a dozen new volunteers, planted some early peas and cleaned out raspberries. Volunteers also did some rototilling, clean up and hand digging to expand garden 2.
Morris got a start on his pollination plan and seeded some flowers. Although our focus is on vegetables because of our mandate to grow food, we will spend a little time on flowers this year to attract pollinators and for beautification. The university is having a big event the end of September that will bring lots of visitors to the area and we want to look good.
