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. Look for weekly postings on this blog during the garden season.

Beginning Work for the 2013 Season
The primary work on Monday will begin with clean-up - deadheading, composting, and beginning to put some items out in the garden (swing, table & chairs, bird baths and feeders), planting potatoes and some seed, watering. Judith Chaddock has begun to replace plants in the house and she may need some help.
For those who are interested, the FUTS trail is complete and they have sprayed a green substance on all the disturbed beds. It is a mulch to stabilize the disturbed ground with some grass and wildflower seed. We will remove some of it in beds we plan to plant this season.
Come join us if you can.
