The Work Begins

On Saturday, March 10th, from 10am until noon. We’ll build the first few raised beds for the new Annex garden as part of a hands-on class. Use the 57th or 58th Avenue entrances, or the original entrance at 6801 SE 60th (a longer walk back to the Annex). Gloves might be handy, but otherwise just bring your hands and your brain. The general public is welcome. Send a note to if you plan to come.

Starting this next Monday, work at the Annex will officially resume, although there have been some eager beavers out working on the paths already. Our biggest job will be moving gravel to fill the new paths. Our next project will be to put cardboard and mulch on areas that did not get covered last fall.

Things are still looking good for moving our new greenhouse from Vancouver to the Annex in April. There are still a few hurdles to jump through with the city permit folks, and as part of that process, we really need a structural engineer. If you are one, or know one, especially one who owes you a favor, you could earn many pats on the back from your fellow Master Gardener friends!
