Yard tools to loan out, perma-dise tour, and organic by nature news

We have available to our members some yard tools that can be loaned out. Several tools are from Tom McNeil that he donated to our group and we also have a garden claw if anyone would like to try it out. There is also an old rototiller (the beast) that we have. Wayne will bring these tools to the community garden next Saturday if you’d like to take a look.

Our goal is to provide fresh produce year round and we are well on our way. Wecontinue to grow! As I am writing this we are building six more boxes for produce. I am so excited to be able to provide our community with fresh naturally grown produce and soon farm fresh eggs from chickens fed certified organic feed. Our tomato, pepper and cucumber plants are beginning to bear fruit along with many other things.

You may not know the different things that we sell so I will just give you a brief rundown of what we have available.
