The name of our garden, Ohana Kuleana, comes from Hawaiian words that mean "Community Responsibility."
Part of that shared responsibility comes into play at our monthly workdays when we come together to work on big projects to improve the garden.
*The garden is full at this time- contact firstname.lastname@example.org to put on the waitinglist*
We dove right into our second season, opening the garden May 1st, a month earlier than last year. And folks sure are taking advantage of that extra time.
We kicked off the season with a workshop taught by OKCG Designer Frank LeBeau. Frank taught this workshop last year as well and it was a favorite so we decided to bring it back!
We learned about healthy soil, when to plant what, how to design for bed for efficient use of space and high yields, and lots more!
In case you missed it here are some helpful materials that were handed out at the workshop
Unfortunately we did not receive the Seeds of Change grant this year, but we have definitely raised awareness for the Needham School garden.
On May 5th and 6th we're excited to host a group of volunteers from Animas High School from 10 am - 3 pm to build a compost bin and other projects at Needham!
If you have construction experience and would like to help, please contact Sandhya Tillotson asap. Thank you!
As I ride my bike to work, I can't help but notice the trees lining downtown neighborhoods bursting with pink and white flowers - petals scattering with the wind. Spring is most definitely here! To me Spring means tulips popping up in the front yard, hauling the grill out of the shed for dinners on the deck and prepping the garden beds for another bountiful growing season. Sometimes it's difficult to imagine gardening in the dead of winter, but now that the soils have warmed it's time to start adding compost, turning the soil, watering and getting some seeds in the ground.Read more
