Spring Planting! Work Days this weekend and next, and on into June we go!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weather we are having!

Michael and I are going to be at the farm Saturday morning at 10 (tomorrow) as well as next weekend (and probably Sundays also) to continue our planting and weeding and set up of our drip system.  

Good news - just this week I received word that we are getting more grant funding for irrigation equipment and perhaps a couple of fruit trees for our side of the garden.  I am also in the process of writing a grant to the Boise Schools Foundation regarding some "outdoor classroom" (common sitting area, weather proof whiteboard space, and maybe some shade!) for our gathering area, as well as some funds for composting areas (and we are adding cafeteria composting next year - hope hope hope).

I also have received loads of donated seed from several major suppliers - it is lovely -and Michael is working on a donation letter for local businesses.  We can divvy up other types of chores when we see you this weekend.  

If you cannot make it this weekend or next, we understand, just keep Michael and I in the loop as to how you'd like to be involved and we'll make it happen.

Thank you all for your interest and support of our project.
