A great team of Novartis volunteers helped us build our raised beds at the Cooperative Garden in rain and mud! The beds were also filled with soil and compost so they are ready for the tender plants. Is the weather ever going to be consistently warm? We will be meeting with our mentors from Grow It Green Morristown to create a shopping list for plants and we have a list of community volunteers just waiting to help manage the garden. We’ll be using stone dust on the paths in the garden so they are wheelchair accessible. Fencing is on order and should be in within the next week or so. The storage shed is arriving any day now since the base has been prepared. We are spending lots of time considering tools to keep out the deer, ground hogs, and turkey vultures! We want to feed people not animals and birds!
