celebrating our garden

We celebrated the opening with cool lemonade, snacks and cupcakes that looked like dirt.
Everyone got in the spirit -- even the kids.

Please drop in any time and see how we are growing.

April -- our official opening

The official garden opening was a hit. 3 county commissioners, our local pastor and all our neighbors. This community venture is reaching the hearts of everyone who sees it.
This is the blessing and the founding board members.

Well the raised bed are in place, the lasagne layers are steadily growing, and all plots were successfully rented. The communal living wall has begun to take shape. All we need now is a few plants, some tender loving care and good weather. Even if you don't have a plot you can join in the fun and help out any weekend. Bring your gardening gear and a jolly spirit and you will fit in perfectly. Here is looking forward to our first spring harvest.

Progress being made.

The ga
rden is under way – we have had a couple of community work days and progress is being made. As you can see from these pictures people are really enjoying getting the garden ready for spring. The sample raised beds are in place. You can sign up to have a plot by contacting us.

Clyde is going to donate a critter to give our garden the true BYNUM feeling of community. We are partnering with experts and offering various classes -- we have already had a sew an seed event for parents and kids which was well attended, and are planning an organic gardening (Thursday March 11 7pm, at Bynum General Store). Keep coming back to check out our status and pop by the garden any time to help out.
Remember... Our Grand Opening is April 11th!

Our first work day... and counting.

Today was our first work day -- we cleared out all the trash, trimmed overgrowth and built our compost pile. The beginning of a wonderful venture for us -- it included Bynum grown leaves, local chicken poop and the re-cycled pumpkins from Haloween on the Bynum bridge.
