Compost Has Been Spread at the Stoddart Avenue Community Garden

With the help of our core volunteers (Dwain, Rayna, Mike, Mitch & Jeannie), we finished spreading the giant pile of black gold compost donated by Kurtz Brothers (in Grove City) at the Stoddart Avenue Community Garden. Three inches were spread on all of the garden beds. We also finished hanging the fence. Although we're all dog tired, it was more pleasant today without the sun and heat. Of course, we're still suffering from the sun burns we received yesterday. I also managed to staple my own hand. OUCH!

We plan to meet again at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday to build the rain barrel platforms, dig out the front flower beds and spread mulch around the fence border (to keep the weeds and grass from growing into the fence and garden beds. It will not be a long day.

Weather permitting, Bill will be able to re-till the garden beds and then I can mark off the plot borders. Then, each gardener can begin planting.
