UPDATE

Due to the rain, we cannot accept a delivery of soil on the lawn at our site tomorrow, so we will NOT be spreading soil on Saturday.  Instead, we will be installing some of the plants that we have available in Bed One.   YAY!   We will postpone the soil delivery until early May.

******************************

 

Please join us for a new work party spreading dirt! We’ll meet at CUH on Saturday, March 31st, from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm to spread another load of dirt. We’ll take a lunch break at Burgermaster! Bring your shovels, gloves, and a good sense of humor! We’ll also start on prepping the new bed, by lifting the stones and clearing out the weeds. We hope to start planting these beds the last half of April, after the plant sale.

Please join us at the Center for Urban Horticulture, 3501 NE 41st St. Seattle, WA 98105 Map on Thursday, December 22, 2011 at 10 am for the first work party of our new public garden.  The diggers have been hard at work removing the horse-tail infested soil, and the new soil, EnviroMix from Pacific Topsoils will be delivered this week.  Come help us spread it out and get ready for planting.  Please bring work clothes and tools for spreading soil, if you have them.  We’ll bring some wheelbarrows.

Announcing our New Public Garden

UWBG CUH LogoWe Bob signing the agreementare so excited to share with you that we have signed a memo of understanding with the Center for Urban Horticulture to establish our first Public Garden on the grounds at CUH.  We will be renovating the beds around the entrance to the north parking lot, and those surrounding the grassy area to the north, adjacent to the Seattle Youth Garden Works Farm. Our first tasks involve deconstructing an existing structure and erecting a new garden shed, renovating the entrance beds with new dirt and adding bulbs, and developing a long term plan for the beds.

We look forward to sharing more news with you in the coming weeks, and hope you can help us at our work parties.  As always, you are welcome to attend our monthly meetings to hear about our progress, and join the Public Garden Committee.
