Thanks to the Diggers!

17 Apr

Thanks to all who came out to help till and prep the beds Saturday afternoon. Attendance included six adults, five enthusiastic kids, and three+ worms. The kids also helped spread mulch around the border fence exterior to help protect the hosta, day lilly, bee balm and other perennial plants pushing up from underground. Grownups uncovered and cleaned up the standing herb bed outside the fence. Oregano and some other herbs are back and ready to be picked!

We hold to hold more activities this week in the evenings. Dates and times depend on volunteers’ availability and weather, and are sometimes announced last minute. Follow the CVEarthlab.com blog (via email notifications) to get the most possible notice about happenings. Friday April 29th and Sunday April 30th, after we pick up flats from the GrowNYC sale, there will be opportunities to transplant marigolds, portulaca, and other annual flowers. All residents, including those with and without small children, are most welcome to participate.
