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.
If everyone’s looking a bit grey in the lunch photo below, it’s because there were snowflakes falling.

I see that we missed your email from last year! Yikes. It was super busy as we tried to get access to our gardens at the university amidst all the COVID regulations.
If you are interested in joining this year, we are accepting new members now. Membership does require that you come out about 4 times a month from about April to October. If that’s not doable with your schedule, you could come as a guest some times. Please email email@example.com if you have questions.
