Mid Summer Reflections

It’s our first full year of operations. A year ago this week we were installing the last of the beds and the second cistern… It’s going pretty well, I’d say. I’m still adjusting to my new role as chief cat herder-not my mileux. I’d rather be building something than tracking expenses and wagging a finger at rule breakers. Nonetheless, we seem to be proving the feasibility of the space. Here it is mid July and, even with leaky pumps, we have used less than 1/3 of our water stores and many of the beds are showing great results. We’ve had a great garden tour, purchased tools and a nice picnic table from local company SouthStorm Now it’s time to get some to get some work done and we’d love help from our neighbors. Please join us on August 20th from 10-4 for a work party and potluck lunch. We’ll be deadheading, weeding, mulching, repairing structures and eating whatever food our good neighbors bring. This is a great opportunity to get to know neighbors and learn about our unique garden. In the meantime, here’s a look around the garden, one year on:
