On Wednesday, our team of Randy (SeedFork President), our two interns, Sarah and Amanda, some staff from Northside Community Center, and some families from the neighborhood planted three new gardens!
SeedFork planted gardens at the community center in 2018, and they were highly successful; Northside, along with many families in the neighborhood, utilized the produce and vegetables grown all year long. There is even a bed of spinach that thrived through the cold months of winter!
Our gardening team weeded and refreshed the existing beds and also planted a new bed. They planted lots of new produce including cabbage, onions, peas, radishes, and brussels sprouts.
Randy continued to use the “Lasagna” method of gardening, laying natural elements such as greens, hay, leafs, twigs, manure, and fertilizer to create a natural bed for the plants. These beds are actually planted on gravel, but have flourished!
What is our goal with this garden in 2019?
Our purpose and goal with all of our gardens in SeedFork’s community garden network is to engage the community in gardening and provide access to fresh and healthy foods. Our mantra is “building community through local food,” and our community gardens help us do just that.
