November 2009: Work Day!

Thank you for everyone who came out to the 2nd work day of the year on Saturday! As usual, we got a lot of things done, including planting 15+ fruit trees! We now have plums, pear, and peach trees added to our fruit orchard. We also laid down some fresh hay, planted 6 more rosemary bushes around our Reading Circle, planted 6 new herb beds for the Herb Project, started a new compost pile, planted tons of new flower and veggie plugs, and started 2 new beds ready for planting! I'm always amazed by the power people can have when they get together to work towards a good cause! Thank you!

A big THANK YOU to RootDownLA for feeding the hungry volunteers! They served a great white bean pasta salad. It definitely has me reconsidering white beans. I love them and want them in everything now!

Stayed tuned for our next workday coming up in December!

It was so great to meet everyone on Saturday. What an amazing group of volunteers. I wrote all about in my blog and posted pics. See you in December!

Garden work days always leave me inspired. Looks like the semester will be over and I'll be able to join the next work day!
