Shovels and soil and trowels, oh my! We spent some time this week getting well equipped for the work ahead of us, which will soon include planting our first seedlings in the community garden! The Health Department and our friends at the Oakeside Bloomfield Cultural Center have teamed up to expand their “Kitchen Gardens,” making the new garden more accessible to residents and help promote healthy eating throughout the community.
Next on the to-do list? We are in the process of having organic top-soil delivered to our community garden plot. We’ve never been so excited about a pile of dirt before! Keep visiting us here on our blog to check on our progress.
