The Shepherd kids were out at the garden for the first time yesterday. They planted some corn and tilled some rows at the southern edge of the garden, from what I hear.

We made great progress with the planting beds last week. Now that we have a good start, we’re only going to till and make beds as a group, so be sure to contact me, if you’re interested in making the beds (or have a tiller to share).

Now that we have some beds to work with, it’s time to get some seeds in the ground. Come out Saturday morning, if you’re available, to help plant the rest of the beds, as well as possibly (depending on the weather) make more beds. We’ll be starting around 8am, and we’d love to meet you!

If possible, bring the following with you:

  • Hand trowels
  • Shovels
  • Garden (metal) rakes
  • Wheelbarrows or wagons – there is ALOT of mulch that needs to be spread in the garden paths
  • Work gloves

Don’t forget water and sunscreen for yourself. If it’s raining, we’ll reschedule. If you can’t make it Saturday morning, but want to help out some other time over the weekend, bring your wheelbarrows and shovels to move the mulch from the north end of the parking lot to the garden paths in the garden.

Also, if you happen to have any extra seeds that you didn’t plant this year and are willing to share, we’d love to have them…feel free to bring them with you on Saturday.

Thanks so much for all of your time and help…hope to see you Saturday morning!
