10:30AM-12:30 PM: Eastside Garden… Move an urbanite path, cooking greens scavenger hunt and cook out.
** BUILDING A PATH AROUND, RATHER THAN THROUGH, THE PLANTS We will shift one of the urbanite paths to make more space for the beautiful purple-flowered salvia.
** COOKING GREENS SCAVENGER HUNT See how many cooking greens you can find in the garden, we’ll collect, identify and cook ‘em up.
Bring: work gloves, water bottle, and a snack.
12:30-2:30 PM Westside Garden Design Charette & Seed Starting
** DESIGN CHARETTE We’ll take the basic idea of deconstructing the shed and creating an outdoor classroom demonstration area with counter, sink, and storage benches and discuss how to create the best set up for the outdoor classroom, a refurbished compost area, and perhaps some rainwater harvesting from the roof of the Veteran’s Memorial Building and a greenhouse area. The amazing project team of Delia Carroll, Ed Fields, Terry Lamb, and Marty Freedman (local cabinet maker) will listen to our ideas and offer possibilities of their own. Be part of shaping the next phase of our very first garden area.
Bring: your creativity, questions, and wild ideas!
** SEED STARTING We’ll also begin starts for early Spring planting.
Bring empty pots, six-packs, and soaked seeds for plants that are better started before planting outdoors in March-April. We will have some of all of these things and soil.
2:30-3:30 PM Potluck Lunch in the Eastside Expansion Circle
Bring: your own dish/plate/bowl, eating utensils, napkin, and some food to share.
