The new gardens are complete and are already filling up! Only 12 spots remaining. . .
A new group of 20 garden plots are being installed. We expect a finish date in late April. Right now our waiting list is at 10 people, and if you'd like to get a spot visit the plot availability page to be added to the list. When the gardens are finished, I will contact each person, and the first payment of $35 is required the day we meet for you to choose a plot!
Thanks to a friendly neighbor, we now have bees residing on our property. They needed a sunny location, and we can use the pollination for both the gardens and the apple orchard. Happy for this win win situation!
We had our first ever Harvest Party last Sunday. It was nice to come together with all the gardeners plus their family and friends. Everyone brought a dish made with fresh ingredients from their garden, and the food was fantastic! What a wonderful time relaxing in the warm weather, meeting new people, and enjoying farm fresh food. Until next year!!
Folks, we only have two plots left! We've only been accepting renters now for two weeks, and we are surprised at how quickly it's filled up. If you're thinking about renting, I suggest moving quickly or they might be gone. Not to mention, the majority of our gardeners are in it for the "long haul". It might be awhile before someone gives up their plot!
Carol Papworth from Russian River Land and Home stopped in yesterday to get to know more about us and why we decided to start a community garden. She writes a blog on local happenings in our community. She did a little interview and then compiled a quick video and write up on her blog.
It's official! We have our first plot rented and planted. For those of you out there who are thinking about renting, don't hesitate, the season is upon us. The sun is shining, the water is flowing, so let's get gardening!
