Water – an important resouce for a garden

Leave a comment

You’ve never appreciated water until you’ve paid the water bill for a community garden. We are finding monthly bills running high for our garden. That is why we are thrilled that we are developing an important natural resource on our property – a well. When the church was built a natural artesian well was capped under the church and never used. Recently we had a plumber come and hook up the well to an outdoor faucet. Now the next phase – a pump (because there is not much pressure from a natural well) and piping to bring it to the garden. Stay tuned for more news on this.
