We have been working hard at the CCRM getting our community gardens in shape for this season.
We worked with the local Boys and Girls Club and cleaned the gardens as well as turned over soil to get our garden boxes ready to plant.
Check out these hard workers!
We also began some work on the BOCES garden with their hardworking students. We tilled the garden, added in some much needed manure and built some raised bed.
Check out the before and after photos.
Using garden beds are great to grow an abundance of vegetables in a small space. These are also most effective in areas with contaminated soil or where flooding is common to allow for drainage.
These beds are also great for your little ones because it allows a trench or path for them to admire the garden without stepping on or harming the plants.
Hope you are all having a wonderful spring and are working hard on getting your gardens ready for planting.
