One more time, a real success clearing plots!!
I understand: the idea of a work party is somehow a troubling oxymoron. However, work parties are an incredible opportunity to meet new people and celebrate together the making of a community.
This year, we have managed to rein in the advance of weeds and blackberries in the West side of the Garden, and we have not seen cases of aphids.
Also, the fire hazard notice to the garden has been rescinded by the Fire Department. This was possible thanks to the intervention of Wendy Ellison, Thomas Bliskemper and our friends in grounds (infinite thanks to Elad and Suzanne, who have sacrificed their weekends clearing the West and Central areas)
The trench on the West side (next to the train tracks) has been clear for almost a year, and the trash inside the garden has been considerably reduced.
The container you see in the picture is the second this year, and we calculate the need of a third one by the end of this month.
