Volunteer Days April 21 to April 28, 2012

Big Work Weekend This Weekend
This weekend is a big weekend for the farm.  Folks from the Legacy Center will be leading volunteers in rebuilding the greenhouse and 3 bay shed, building a chicken coop and run, reconfiguring and burying the irrigation pipes and doing a general clean up of the area.  If you are available, please stop by any time between 8 am and dusk on Saturday or Sunday and lend us a hand.  Thanks!!

Plans For Next Week
Tuesday, April 24 from 8:30 to 11:30:  We'll plant leeks, parsnip and ginger, weed the winter root bed and plant buckwheat as a cover crop on all the spots that have been left bare as we have harvested our bounty, and add manure to the compost pile.

Thursday, April 26 from 8:30 to noon:  We'll transplant zinnia, cosmos, aster, thyme and marigolds into the flower beds and finish prepping all three other flower beds for future transplants.

Friday, April 27 from 1:00 to 3:00:  We'll finish anything left over from Thursday and weed, feed and mulch the big perennial beds.
