Our garden is growing

So much has happened in the last year. We have new garden beds, a communal herb garden and more. We are working on a new website, but in the meantime look for us on Instagram and Facebook and sign up to our mailing list using the contact tab at the far right.

the seeds were planted

A mug of tea and orange cake warm out of the oven. A dusty library and spirited conversations about breathing life into a tired space. A blustery autumn day and a site visit with a rugged up toddler and a young impatient girl. The adults point and pace and plan. The girl plays Russian roulette with a tape measure. Talking to herself, stepping out the length of “the corns” and ” the zucchinis” impatient to dig the beds in. Autumn is not a funny time to start a garden, you wait til Spring!

Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, lets stay here. And by their connection the land, they are connected to one another – Anne Raver
