Check out our new hugelkultur page to see how we built it and follow it’s progress through the Summer.
Summer gardens are winding down and winter gardens are going in. If you don’t want to have a winter garden you should plant a cover crop instead!
Applications for Fifth Street should be ready in January 2015. Please get in touch if you want to be on the waiting list!
We’re still working on the Eleventh Street Community Garden. The plan is to get a cover crop in this Fall and till it in next Spring. We still need to finish the infrastructure including fencing and irrigation but we hope to open the garden in the Spring of 2015. Interested? Check the Eleventh Street Community Garden page for more details and get involved!
The Fifth Street Community Garden has multiple plots available and is now accepting applications with no waiting list. Please check out the Fifth Street page for a map of the garden and more details on how to apply.
Applications for the Fifth Street garden are now ready. Please review the rules and garden guide and then complete the application and hold harmless agreement.
Returning gardeners have until Feb. 8th to confirm they want to keep their plots. Until then new gardeners will be placed on a waiting list until we know for sure how many plots will be available.
We’re putting the finishing touches on applications for the 2014 garden season. Check back soon for more details!
We had a nice turnout for our first monthly Lunch in the Garden event.

Despite the stormy weather this weekend the new garden season is just days away.

Thank you to everyone who attended the harvest party this year! It was great to see so many gardeners from each garden and share some good food and conversation.
Our harvest party is scheduled for Oct. 28 from 4-7pm. Please see the flier for more details!
The Master Gardeners Garden Tour was a huge success. Each garden saw about 150 visitors. The comments from our guests were all very positive. We had the opportunity to explain a lot of the techniques in use and how the gardens serve as a place to educate not just the gardeners but the whole community.
Here are a few of the artichokes we harvested today at 5th St:
5th street had an informal work party on Sunday. Steve from Lazy J delivered 7 yards of compost at 10 AM:
Several volunteers got right to work shoveling and hauling compost to the willow tree to prepare it for planting. After several hours the bed was ready. Hank brought a few gooseberries and Airport Garden donated a dozen herb plants.
We made a narrow path that loops back under the tree. It will get some cardboard and alder chips soon. The area along the fence needs a 2×8 sunk in the ground to keep the neighbor’s grass and weeds out. We’ll put more cardboard and alder chips afterwards to keep the weeds down.
