Soil Amendments:
We are ordering booster blend from Cedar so if you want some let Jan know and she can order for you. For most gardens, 1-2 square yards would be plenty and costs 23$ a yard plus delivery. You will also want to add some organic fertilizer.

We will have a gardeners get together on March 26, 9am. We plan to have a rototiller available that day. Some gardeners want to use it to help turn under the crimson clover planted last fall which will add some nice nitrogen as you turn it back into the soil. We’ll start the day at 9am with coffee and review of the garden guidelines and just get to know each other again and welcome new gardeners.

We ask that you volunteer 10 hours per year in the garden and several opportunities are coming up. Please let me know if you can come to any of these events.
