Below you'll see the stages of planting broccoli in prep for Fall.

Looks like it's ready!

It really does take "a community" to grow a community garden. Thanks for coming today!  It was lovely seeing you :)

Happy Gardening !

Harvest of Hope gardeners once again make use of recycled materials to make these three new raised beds out of donated wood this past week. 

These three beds, built by Phil, Earl & Doug, took about 45 minutes each, and have now filled spaces (once empty) in the garden area.  The beds will be filled with soil next week, then plants of course.

View from rear of garden

The lumber, used to make the beds, was donated by Archadeck, builders of decks, etc

In the future, more beds will be built in the vacant lot to the right of the current garden (when viewed from road).

Thanks again to Phil, Earl, Doug for their hammer-and-nail-ability, and just good plain, hard work, splinters & sweat!!!!  ... and of course, Archadeck for donating materials!!!

Happy Gardening !
