Gardens Founded in 2001 - Home in 2002
The garden crew is active from April-October and sometimes in November weather permitting. Work happens weekly throughout the garden season on Monday and Thursday mornings from 8:00 am-12:00 pm. It also is scheduled for one Saturday a month from April through October. Cancellations due to weather will be posted by 6:00 am of the workday on this blog. You must attend a spring orientation to the garden and Northland Hospice & Palliative Care in order to work. A summary of the work that has been done is included on the blog.

Workdays 4/25 & 4/28
On Thursday, we had a small crew but managed to as usual get a great deal done. Laura Davis worked in the Michael Moore Garden and made some purchases at the Landscape Connection. I spent my time filling the standing raised beds and Zane's new garden with soil and compost. Cynthia Katte and Vicki Goodwin both worked on putting tulips and daffodils in the garden from the beds on Switzer Canyon. Cynthia also got the last of the potatoes in. Linda Guarino and Kay Balzer continued to work on the 1/2 circle garden plant removal. Christine Orr removed the last of the phlox and transplanted them to the Inferno Strip. We all did a bit of watering, but the beds other than the inferno strip are still moist. Water should be turned on next week.
