Foster-Powell Community Garden: From One Season to the Next

We had our final official garden event of the year on September 23rd whence we did some clean up, and shared a little time together.  The crowd was small, but the work we were able to accomplish together was tremendous.  One of our biggest accomplishments was moving and spreading this giant pile of mulch.

We ended the day with a small potluck lunch.  During our time together several people shared great ideas for promoting the garden.  One woman, Kathey, is stepping up to care for the kiwi trees.  They didn’t do so well this year, but she has the enthusiasm to carry the dream forward, which is the sort of thing the garden needs.  John had the fun idea of growing pumpkins for fall next year, and having some sort of harvest party.  Jason had the excellent idea of making some garden stickers, and other ‘promotional’ material.

What ideas do you have?  We welcome them.
