Progress report on the No-till Flower Border Project


Progress report on the No-till Flower Border Project

An energetic group of community garden members came together in the late morning and early afternoon today to continue building no-till flower beds along the main path of the garden.

In attendance were Shane, Rachel, Barbara, Brian L., Jen Sch., Tera, Jen Saa., and Matt.

Volunteers were able to construct two 8 foot by 2 foot (approx.) flower bed before running out of soil and compost. One bed was sown with zinnia seeds and the other bed was sown with two varieties of sunflowers.

Additional volunteers continued to lay down cardboard and wood chips to help suppress the existing vegetation and provide an outline for the rest of the flower beds.

There will another opportunity to help complete five more flower beds next weekend.

A schedule will be released once the delivery of additional compost/soil is confirmed.

We hope to have a mid-morning session and an early evening session.

Please make plans to join us in this exciting community garden project!


The No-till Flower Border Project


Saturday May 25th,

Session #1: 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Session #2: 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Join us for one or both sessions. We need volunteers to load and haul compost and wood chips. Also needed are people to help put down cardboard and help spread wood chips and fill beds with soil and compost.

Have you noticed the little raised bed near the front gate of our garden? It's the exciting beginning of our no-till flower border project, and we need your help to make it flourish! Imagine a vibrant border garden coming to life in just 1-2 hours with the power of our amazing volunteers.

This no-till flower border will stretch from the front gate to the garden shed, creating a beautiful community plot filled with stunning annual and perennial flowers perfect for bouquets. We'll be constructing around eight flower beds using the innovative no-till method, with each bed showcasing a different variety of flower.

We'd love for you to join us in bringing this project to life! 
To participate, please reach out to Matt at the usual connections. Let's come together and make our garden even more beautiful! This project is fully funded by the Davis Park Community Garden.
