Garden Volunteer Hours, this Sunday 5/6 from 10 AM-3 PM

The St. Lydia’s Garden is part of a new project happening at 346 Bergen Street between 3rd and 4th Avenues.  We have a 20′ x 40′ plot in a larger Green Thumb garden called A Small Green Patch.  Some of the other organizations involved in cultivating this multi-use space include Feedback Farms (a project dreamed up by Clare Sullivan, who bakes our bread and her collaborators), and our neighbors in the 505 Carroll Street building, the Textile Arts Center.  Work days are every Tuesday from 1-5, Saturday from 9-2, and some Sundays, and there is always lots of work to do in the different areas of the garden. This weekend St. Lydia’s folks will be working on Sunday instead of Saturday, from 10-3, and we’ll be working on building raised beds for more vegetables.  We could always use more hands so if you are available to help out, just show up or send me an email at rachel@stlydias.org and let me know you’re coming.

We could also use donations of the following items:

-untreated lumber for making raised beds
-stones for building a bench/wall
I’ll be posting regular updates here on the blog about our progress and planned volunteer hours, so stay tuned!Here’s a plan for how we hope to lay out our space:

Last weekend we made these burlap sack gardens and planted radishes, peas, lettuces, and golden chard:

The most exciting part was opening the hydrant for water!

We hope to see you for more good times outdoors this Sunday!
