Ash Wednesday Garden Work Day - Berkeley

Today at Shepherd of the Hills (SOH) Lutheran in Berkeley, we had our first garden workday. SOH will be gardening throughout Lent and created a Sunday School curriculum about gardening.

Here's what we did today. First, we went to a horse stable in Oakland to get some free manure.
Then we dug up the soil that was practically clay and mixed it with manure and compost.

We built the terrace on a sloped hill. These beds will be used to grow a biblical garden. At the end of Lent, SOH will have grown their own bitter herbs to use in their sader service.

This flat section will be a place that we plant some fruit trees. SOH is hoping for a fig tree. If anyone wants to donate one, let us know. Email
