Permablitz 2015

Today marked the official initiation of the garden into this years growing season!

Our 2015 “Permablitz” was a great success with all the talented and hardworking volunteers that traded a Sunday sleeping in for a grueling yet therapeutic day in the garden. What was only a few hours ago misshapen plots and mats of weeds is now a masterpiece. We began by tearing out the ever encroaching bermuda grass and clovers that have slowly taken over the garden…and if that didn’t tire everyone out then shoveling wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow, after wheelbarrow of compost and mulch definitely did. But the result – a beautifully prepared garden, community connection, and some brownies and clementines to celebrate our impressive work.

We also installed our rain barrels, built new composters, and most importantly shared the joy of gardening with a bunch of joyous little kids.

Check out these photos from our fun day!
