Let the Planting Begin

by Jen

The Community Garden officially opened for planting on Saturday, a beautiful sunny day. Gardeners came armed with seedlings, trellises, children and chairs. While some gardeners worked hard to get their 10' by 20' plots planted, others took their leisure (usually the kids) in the lovely surroundings. A variety of planting styles are already apparent, from straight-forward rows of vegetables to interplanting with flowers to repel pests and attract pollinators. Some of the more experienced gardeners shared their knowledge with other gardeners as they got to know their gardening neighbors. Come by throughout the summer to see how the space transforms!
