This Sunday, June 29th from 12-3pm Emeraude Bonard will be running a workshop as a follow-up to Leila Darwish’s bioremediation workshop, in hopes of reconnecting with the community around polluted sites. Yay community action!

This workshop will go over the life of the Parker Gardens & together we will decipher how air pollution affects community gardens. There will be a powerpoint presentation inside, followed by a garden and community walk. Please dress to be outside! There will be snacks and hot tea provided.

Come one, come all this Sunday to step into a hands-on introductory course to bioremediation & take community action.

Sunday was certainly full of “new”. We installed a new little hose on our tap, so it’s much easier to fill our watering can, there now are new little bean plants in the bed, and we harvested some of our bamboo for makeshift trellis’ for them to climb. The bamboo is so beautiful! And the beans look so happy to finally be outside.
We picked up and installed some tomato cages, and good thing because some of our shimmery plants are getting pretty big.
Just a reminder of our new summer collective garden times, wednesdays, 6-9pm and sunday 1-4pm. If you want to come join, just drop by! We welcome everyone, especially youth, and have a no-pressure, no-initiation, no-waiting-list, no-hierarchy approach to growing food.
Mulch Love!

Wednesday’s pot luck was a great time. We had some new faces in the group, and we all shared a great meal. Sayuri even brought some vegetables cooked with the fennel from the garden. Yum!
We talked about workshop ideas, and threw around ideas to learn more about permaculture, bioremediation, mycocultivation, wildcrafting, beekeeping… And are excited to bring in some mentors to expand on these subjects.
For the immediate future, we have Car Free Day on Sunday June 15th, where we will be hanging out on the Thistle block, making seed bombs and plant markers. We’ll be there all day so come say Hi!
Next Wednesday we’ll be in the garden, transplanting all our lovely bean and tomato plants. We have so many!! Come help us give these plants their new homes, and build guides for them to grow on.
Happy growing!!

The garden is bursting with wonderful flowers, figs, fennel, ferns…. the bees have been buzzing around us as we weed and find new treasures.

This Wednesday, we will be in the garden from 1-4, transplanting tomatoes, basil, maybe some peas, eggplant… whatever is ready! Come down and join us, there is always room for another helping hand.

Beautiful Sunday by radiclebeets

Today we had a great time out in the sun, weeding and digging out blackberry vines, chatting about bioremediation, and learning about the plants in our garden.

We found a bunch of self-seeding carrots among the comfrey and buttercup, so we pulled and mulched hard around them to help them grow. We also found a bunch of self-seeding lettuces in the mushroom bed, and pulled them out for salads, and threw down some myceliated woodchips. It’s amazing what can grow on our little patch of land, and what kind of plants want to be around us. We sure have a lot of Lemon Balm, Chocolate Mint, Spearment, and… well… unknowns!! The bees were happy to be with us too, making their way around the purple comfrey flowers.

Our fig tree is even starting to grow little fruits- which we are all so excited to harvest when the time comes!
