Our new group gardening programs, "Grow" and "Emergence" have started, and we're having a great time so far!
|Part of our group: Mike, Ali, Courtney and Megan|
|Each day starts out with a lesson about native or edible landscaping before we start our hands on activity.|
|Building beds for lavender, which we'll plant in late spring.|
|Re-establishing beds taken over by invasive vegetation, which we've solarized with plastic.|
|Preparing a bed for native perennials.|
|Composting area and vegetable beds are in the background.|
|"Sheet mulching" new orchard area, which means layering cardboard and organic materials for decomposition over winter.|
|Through Emergence, Flint is moving from years of working in conventional landscaping to more healing aspects of gardening.|
|A peek behind the chestnut tree|
|Weekly basket - Fall offering|
|Grow participants cut their own bouquets of cooked greens.|
