Community Garden expansion, in hours and in beds

Our community garden is growing, in more ways than one.

We continued last week the process of building and filling 20 new beds at the garden, which opens for the season on Tuesday night during our first community garden night. We'll be planting some transplants, talking about the upcoming season and getting to know our new garden families.

To accommodate the different schedules of our garden participants and their families, we're extending our weekly get-togethers to Saturday morning, from 9 to 10 a.m., as well as on Tuesday nights from 7 to 8 p.m. Obviously, any of the garden participants are welcome to come plant, weed and harvest in their beds whenever they like, but we've found that scheduling a common time to come together really helps build a sense of community at the garden.

The public is more than welcome to come to any of our garden nights, so stop by and say hello tomorrow night or Tuesday morning.

Below are some photos from the expansion on Thursday.
