Soil Preparation Event & Garden Work Shift Schedule

On Saturday, April 30, we will start preparing the soil for planting.  This event will consist of activities like spreading compost, raking, and turning soil.  We will begin at 10 a.m. and work until about noon.

On the topic of soil preparation, we would like to experiment with using manure on some of the garden beds.  This is an organic practice.  One of our volunteers has sourced free manure at the Sunnybrook Stables, but it must be picked up there.  If any volunteer has access to a flatbed truck, and would be willing to help out with this task, please reply to [email protected].  We would also need volunteers to help with shovelling at Sunnybrook.  Let us know if you would be interested.  By the way, seasoned manure is not really smelly! 

At their last meeting, the leadership committee decided on the work and sales shifts for this season.  They are as follows:

  Tuesday, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm – sales and garden work
  Thursday, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm – garden work
  Friday, 9:00 am to 11:00 am – garden work
  Saturday, 9:30 am to 11:30 am – sales and garden work

If you will be able to volunteer weekly this season, give some thought to these times, and pick one that fits with your schedule.

Shortly, we will be letting you know about the plans for planting days.

See you in the garden next week!
