This corner plot has the rockiest, poor soil in the whole garden! We build a raised bed so they can have a more productive garden!

We built composters.

Beautiful multi bin composters.

We installed an herb garden.

Morgan & Nicholas have planned the herb garden and will work on getting it in shape over the next few weeks. Watch for the labels so we know what's been planted!

We built a bench under the rainwater structure.

Some slight adjustments needed in order to get the bench in the right spot.

And people tidied up the garden – weeding, mulching pathways and getting to know each other!

Everyone can weed!

  1. Wow, looks great!

    Can food scraps (just raw fruit and veg peels, stems, and cores) still be brought to the garden compost? If so, which bin do they go in?

    • Hey Ranen – more big progress this spring! Yes, fruit and vegetable scraps can be added to the compost. The compost volunteers will post signs for which bins they would like us to use this year. Happy composting!
