We certainly have had a warm and busy past two months at the Duke Community garden. Many exciting events have and continue to come our way. Our plants are bountiful (the tomatoes are my favorite), our dirt is rich and we need some more rain!!! But thanks to the person who invented the garden hose, we shall survive until we are graced with a good downpour.
Recently we have been invited to participate in a Sustainable Sites Initiative project with the SMART Home. An outside landscaping company, called The Hayter Firm, and John Deere will be providing the funding and architectural/structural/landscaping genius while incoorporating the ideas and plans of the student body and Duke Univeristy officials. We have not officially agreed to participate as we have not see a final plan to date. Please keep checking the e-mail sent through the list serve for the latest information on this and other projects.
On a separate note, we are still having community workdays from 6-9 on Wednasdays and 8-11 on Sundays, and all are welcome.
Until next time,
your summer gardener,
