It’s beginning to look a lot like spring at the LMU Organic Community Garden. We had our first meeting on Jan. 30th with 30 people in attendance. We have a meet and greet planned for Feb. 20th for old members and to welcome our new families with tours of the garden. Here it is February 1st and we still have broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts, lettuce in the high tunnel from our fall garden, and some beautiful kale in our green house. We are looking forward to working closer with Servolution ministries assisting with some home gardens and their raised beds on site. We have the following classes/workshops planned so far, Hands on Fruit Tree pruning, garden planning, Wild Edibles & Medicinal Plants, Heart Healthy Cooking, Starting Sweet Potato Slips (hands on). We are putting more emphasis this year on home gardens and the importance of pollinators, and are working on getting our raised beds ready for some cool weather planting. We are looking forward to the Grow Appalachia Gathering and I have included a picture from 2 years ago at the Gathering we always take back alot of great ideas and get excited and to dig in dirt!
PEACE, LOVE and Grow
