On April 22, 2013 Maloca Garden came alive once more. Gardeners of different backgrounds gathered to get the garden ready for the growing season. We did some spring cleaning and planting! Onions, beets, radishes, rutabagas, carrots, turnips, lettuce, arugula, peas, and beans are now in the ground and ready to sprout! We also pruned the raspberry bushes so we can have more productive plants. The compost was aerated to improve decomposition after the reduced activity during winter. The flower and herb gardens are now free from dead dried plants so we can have more space for more diversity. Finally, we started to protect the raised beds from animal pest. We installed some chicken wire fences, but not all the beds are fenced yet.
Thank you that all who came to help to put Maloca Garden in shape for the summer. Your participation is really appreciated!
Maloca Garden’s next event will be a raised-bed building workshop. We are going to restore the existing wood structures and build new ones. Hopefully, we will also continue to fence our raised-beds. If you are interested in joining us for that event, stay tuned for upcoming information or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to our mailing list.
