The Best Christmas Gift

Christmas elves (gardeners) are steadily working.  Fence and gate building continues, as Harvest of Hope Community Garden (HOH) expands to the East.  So maybe they aren't supplied with toys, sleighs or reindeer... but the gardeners' tools and equipment are trucks, saws, hammers, nails, posts, and fence-wire. The fence work is almost finished, and just in time for Christmas!

New fencing and 'walkthrough' gate being installed (view from new SE corner of property).  Note:  more birdhouses too.

Another new 'drive-through' Gate on East side of garden.  Now gardeners can now drive through garden from either side (West OR East) of the property.

See how much we've grown.  This is indeed the best Christmas gift Harvest of Hope could receive!!

A few recent pictures from the garden...

This worksheet below was submitted from one of our younger gardeners (age 9) who had submitted this to her health class in August; see bottom paragraph "B"

HOH Garden Receives Search for Excellence Award (Demonstration Category)


Breaking News!!

Congratulations to Harvest of Hope Community Garden:
 2013 Tennessee Search for Excellence Award recipient,

The Garden Expands! ... Hence the Fence

While many of us may consider hibernating in winter, work continues at Harvest of Hope.

The Harvest of Hope Community Garden is expanding... hence the need to enlarge the fence.  Gardeners have been working hard placing posts and wire fencing, fixing the gate, etc.

Below are a few pictures of the current progress.

Stay tuned for more photos when the fencing is complete :)

Happy Gardening!

A friend is one who overlooks your broken fence and admires the flowers in your garden.
