Spring in The Garden

Spring has sprung! And the Well Fed Community Garden is abuzz with all sorts of activities! Weedy Wonders Workshop

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.

 

Tulips and HyacinthsOur 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.

MizunaVolunteers are the backbone of our garden. Each week a dedicated core of new and old volunteers come to help out in the garden. A huge thanks to you all! We couldn’t do it without you guys!
