August 2012 Garden update and call for volunteers

Although this blog has been quiet, lots of progress has been made at the garden this year! On behalf of all of the gardeners, I want to give a huge thanks to Connor from Bowness High School, who built the lovely storage box that will be very handy for storing hoses, nozzles, etc. etc. 
Also thanks to Mike, who made the beautiful new sign at the entrance to the garden – it looks fantastic and we are amazed at Mike’s woodworking skills. Not only that, we also have Mike to thank for fixing the water nozzle, so that it’s now possible to connect the water without getting soaked – THANK YOU MIKE!
And thanks to Christine our wonderful volunteer coordinator who does so much work around the garden and over email.
You may have noticed that William and his crew have been steadily working away at the garden this year. They will be out with a bobcat on Friday doing work at the entrance, and William has requested volunteers for this Saturday (August 4) at 9:00 am to help plant some shrubs to make the entrance to the garden beautiful. Please come if you can, it will be a good opportunity to meet other gardeners as well!
