Planning a Community Garden
Summer 2014 quarter
Tumwater is the only local city without a Community Garden. We have identified a Tumwater home willing to donate their big front yard for a community garden. Join us in helping to plan and build a Community Garden in Tumwater. Shall we include a chicken run and coop, to let poultry fertilize and till select garden beds? Shall we set up a rain barrel or two, for summer watering? Where can we get funding? Do we really need funding, or can we make it on a shoestring? How will the garden be maintained? Help us make this dream a reality. Taught by an organic farmer.
You’ll have the opportunity to get down in the dirt, if you like. Let’s do it!
