07 Apr Spring in The Garden
We have been hosting some great workshops at the garden. In March we had a workshop titled, “Weedy Wonders, Plant Walk and Natural Medicine Making” Attendees took a walk around the garden and identified medicinal weeds and garden plants, then got to make a salve, oil and vinegar out of these. Our teacher, Meg Brown is a dedicated and passionate wildcrafter (one who collects wild plants) and told us all about the plants and how to be good stewards of our wild and native plants.
Our front pollinator garden is bursting with color! Tulips, Hyacinths, Daffodils and all types of smaller flowers are in bloom. We have been working hard installing trees, shrubs and bulbs all fall waiting until spring to see them grow and produce fruits and flowers!
The garden is bursting with plants as well! We are now harvesting arugula, mizuna, mixed salad greens, chives and thyme!
Many more rows of plants are growing with lettuce, pac choi, sugar snap peas, cilantro, dill, radishes, beets and many more yummy spring crops.
