Friday Follow-Up

Last Friday’s interest meeting and work day was a huge success! About 25 people came out to work in the garden that day. We did a whole lot of weeding, tilling, planting and watering. The garden was lucky enough to receive a donation of compost from Panorama Pay Dirt, a great local source of compost. This allowed us to fertilize our garden beds and improve the soil for the lettuce, spinach, arugula and broccoli that we planted that day. In addition to getting lots of work done, Friday was a great opportunity to meet new people and munch on some fresh produce from the garden. Thanks to everyone who came out to the UVa Community Garden for the work day!

Don’t forget we’ve got work days every Monday from 10am-noon and Friday from 3:00pm-5:00pm. Hope to see you at the garden!
