More Mulch!

We hope you're enjoying the cherry blossoms! If you've been by the garden lately, you may have noticed a large portion has been sheet mulched, thanks to the hard work of volunteers on February 13th. It's going to take a big push to get the rest of the area sheet mulched, but fortunately we've been approached by the Greater Victoria Green Team who would like to help out. Hurray! This is an exiting opportunity to work with a great organization. We've decided to cancel the March 12th work party in the hopes that we can concentrate our efforts on under plantings & pathways in April (April 23rd 10-1pm to be exact!). 

If you're itching to get in the garden before then, or would like to help out with the Greater Victoria Green Team work party, please email me & we'll make it happen. 

A reminder: for most current happenings & news, please "like" us on Facebook

Thank you!

"The Big Thank you"

A huge thank you to everybody who showed up to the work party today. 
"The Big Mulch" went quickly thanks to a very hardworking group, cooperative weather & an early morning mulch delivery from the city. We were delighted to work with a group of students from Glenlyon Norfolk School. The mountain of mulch felt small in the midst of this enthusiastic bunch!
This morning a large portion of the west side was sheet mulched, as well as a bit of clean up on the east side. Holes were marked for the remaining plants, and irrigation plans revised. The plan is to continue sheet mulching on the west side on MARCH 12th (9-12pm) and again in April. We'll be ready to plant too!
