What a lovely way to start off the season!! Sunshine, hard labour, lovely folks- such a blast. We shovelled compost into the plots, repaired some broken irrigation, and made some new friends! Bikers rode by smiling and waving, and some friendly dogs and their people strolled by and said hello. We discovered some rogue thyme growing in corners of the beds and decided to let it be; thyme is awesome and it obviously wanted to be there!

Some folks stayed and worked until 5, and planted the pollinator flower seeds in the vernon beds. It will be so exciting to see that space burst with color and hum with our little alis!!

I ran a seed planting workshop with the Younguns, a group of super rad youth, who were stoked to plant some seeds and get a little dirty. We did a walkthrough of the gardens and they impressed me with their ability to point out and identify the plants and trees. Such great people!!

I hope to see all who can make it for the next work party: this wednesday from 1-4!

Enjoy that sunshine, sow mulch love!!!
