Last night after the rain barrel workshop, I was looking around the Student Center to figure the best place to set the rain barrel up and I decided to move the compost bin over a little. The bottom of the bin was rich dark soil full of worms. Oh what a sight that was. It is so rewarding to see a successful working compost. This new soil will eventually go into the garden beds to feed the flowers and herbs.
|Go on worms! Work, work, work!|
I went last night to the rain barrel training class and it was super duper informative. The bonus was I came back to St. Andrew's with its first rain barrel. We will be installing it this week, so look for the pictures. By next week we will have next to the Student Center a compost bin, rain barrel, and two garden beds. Wow! What's next?

We are going to meet this Tuesday night for a garden meeting. I hope you will be able to join us.
The agenda for the night will be:
1. discuss about planting options for early spring through early summer
2. review how ( and what ) we can compost in our compost bin and feed back on the whole idea of composting
3. future planning for future meetings on what we need to build a our garden ( bring calendars )
4. Discuss when we should present concept plans of the garden
This week we will be doing a pot luck, so bring some munchies.
See you Tuesday night!
