Despite the heat, we all barreled forward with an ambition work plan AND got to break in the brand new tiller we were fortunate enough to receive through our first-ever garden grant - thank you Keep Arizona Beautiful!!!!
With the tiller, we were able to get more work done in one day than ever before. We prepped the entire ROW bed on the South side of the garden, built berms, and tilled composted organic manure into the soil. After one day that entire area is ready for seeds! Such great work.
When they were done with that, our beautiful, hard working, super ambitious volunteers completely leveled and mulched our new outdoor learning area. The outdoor learning area is something we wanted to create for when we have large groups out to Garden, for example the Bioscience High School students who we've newly embarked on a partnership with as part of their Connections Endeavors and Community Action for Nutrition (CAN) programs.
All in all, I was thoroughly impressed with the community effort we had on Sunday and can't wait till this Sunday!
(If you want to get involved, just show up! Garden Volunteer Days are every Sunday from 10am - 2pm.)
