Keeping our gardens clean!

IMG_2557

Our shed is cleaned up and looks downright spiffy.  Let’s keep it that way.  It is so important to clean any tools thoroughly with water before returning to the shed to prevent nematodes and germs from spreading to gardens.  We appreciate your help with this!

Nineteen volunteers showed up early Saturday morning to weed and  clean up the  north end of the farm and parts of the organic section.  It was truly wonderful to see how that many folks can make a difference in such a short time!  The Farm looked so much better after a few hours! Spring  clean up will be another opportunity so we thank all of you who came last Saturday and hope to see more of you in the spring!
