A little bunny has been munching his way through the garden over the last few weeks. This morning several gardeners, affectionately known as the “Bunny Wranglers,” managed to corner him in the back of the garden and Laura Margadonna pinned him with a stick while Martha Grizzel picked him up to relocate him outside the fence!
If you missed Saturday’s workday, you missed a fun time. The garden was buzzing with activity as we had 21 students and most of the gardeners showing up to volunteer. After pulling Bermuda grass, students wheelbarrowed load after load of mulch to cover the aisles. Many gardeners were preparing their plots for planting (waiting to plant because of the impending frost!).
COME ON SPRING WE ARE READY FOR YOU!
The Giving Garden of Carrollton has donated over 2,000 pounds of fresh organic produce to Christian Community Action and the Aldersgate UMC in 2015.
We welcome you to come join in our efforts. Now interviewing applicants interested in adopting a plot for 2016. The yearly fee is $40 for a bed measuring 4′ x 20′.
Let your friends and neighbors know that plots are available for rent.
Today was Food Share for senior citizens in the community delivered by volunteers of Aldersgate United Methodist Church. Thanks to Cindy Baxley for taking our 21 lb. harvest up to the church for distribution. We had a Hebron High School senior assisting in the garden and with Food Share this morning and he was a tremendous help. We also had a neighbor volunteer. Linda had been a recipient of some of our free mulch and felt she wanted to give back so she joined us in pulling Bermuda grass. She is in the orange shirt and floppy straw hat.
There were so many people working to clean up the garden common areas pulling Bermuda grass and weeds. It was hot but the efforts of so many were SIZZLING as tasks got done. Thanks to all who help to keep our beautiful garden in good shape!
