Free Farm Work Day - 3/24/2010

At today's work day we were able to get a lot of great work done, because we had so many wonderful volunteers. You can see most of them here in this photo.
We planted lots of different types of plants and spaces today.
We planted tomatoes in hot frames (water cooler bottles with the bottoms cut off).
We planted several types of mint in our labyrinth.
We planted beans along our stairs. As they grow taller, they will climb the stings attached to the poles we set up.We did our second planting of our lettuce lawn. This is planted by spreading lettuce seeds closely together covering it with a thin layer of dirt and watering. When it grows we will trim the lawn and it will continue to grow (like grass). We planted squash in our raised beds.
Check out our how our hillside garden is growing:
We still have more plants to plant, and we hope you'll help plant them on our next garden work day Saturday from 10am-2pm (with a vegan lunch served at noon). A neighbor came with a truckload of plants for our garden. A retired gardener, this neighbor liberated these plants from a building he was managing that was about to be destroyed. He's been taking care of them for the last 10 years.
