What a glorious time of year to work outside together. More rewarding still when our labors are starting to yield results!
Pictured here are some of the fruit laden trees in our food forest. Last Saturday, we set sweet potato slips in our annual bed, anticipating another bumper crop to donate to Food Independence in the fall. Join us as we finish the task Saturday 6/18.
Other highlights of this busy season include Wednesday evenings working in the pollinator garden (starting at 5:30). By thinning this area, we have been able to provide starts of several plants for the proposed library garden as well as the Independence tractor garden. Back at the Food Forest, new name tags help to identify some of our species. And finally, we’re offering Open Garden days (the next will be Sat 6/18 at 11 am) so that anyone can come and learn more about this exciting Permaculture process.
June’s monthly meeting was a potluck and home garden tour hosted by Kathy Cole. On July 18th, the Permaculture group invites the greater Grayson Landcare family to COGS (Church of the Good Shepherd) for a cookout and to see the new features of the Food Forest in person.
