Saturday, April 11, a group of volunteers from Americorps NCCC gave a huge boost to St. John’s Grow Appalachia Community Garden. The group has been working at Cumberland Falls State Park on a variety of projects, including pulling invasive species like burning bush.
Today, they came to set up cedar poles for two grape arbors as part of our garden. In addition, they started to cut the sod from the garden plots, so we can till the soil and begin planting. While all of this has been mapped out on paper, now you can see how it’s all going to look. And it was a great day to be working outdoors.
Thanks to June Sullivan, who provided pizza for lunch. Thanks to Steve Gilbert and Ward Brown for organizing the project!
Enjoy the photos of the day.
