It has been a while, the garden has been dormant for the winter season, but today I met with some of the City staff and representatives from Armstrong Garden Center and I have some really good news. Armstrong is planning to make a real investment, and erect a fence with a gate to keep intruders at bay, also to provide materials for us to build new raised beds (I am looking for an Eagle Scout candidate). They will grade the area and provide decomposed granite for pathways, and will teach workshops and have a plant sale in the spring! They even have plans to espalier some fruit trees on the inside of the fenced area. Truly an amazing offer of help on their part.
I will have more details soon and I will let you all know what we can do and when. Have a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year! Barb
