We are going to meet this Tuesday at 5pm.
Due to the snow still on the ground the early workdays will be fairly short. We can spread plastic sheets over the garden, which will speed the warming of the soil. We can also work to get the cold frames going again and plant some spinach when the ground thaws enough. If any members are capable carpenters we can start building more cold frames and raised beds. For this we need to start scrounging wood and glass. Keep an eye out for furniture left outside residence buildings on campus.
Please use the comment option on this post if you have any ideas about where to get wood for the garden or if you have skills or tools to help with construction.
Please take a look at the Riverdale Meadow Community Garden page on cold frames.
