Earthwise Farms June 21, 2014

The Lower Mainland Green Team laid down irrigation and planted vegetables in the summer fields at Earthwise Farm.

Thank you to Charlotte and Earthwise Society for hosting us on a gorgeous day. (And for the banana bread!)

Thank you to all the LMGT volunteers: Nancy, Michael, Tiffany, Rick, David, and Mark!

Highlights


  • 6 volunteers contributed 20 hours
  • 3 people have never to Earthwise Farm before.
  • 2 volunteers had never prepared vegetable beds before.
  • Volunteers got to lay out drip irrigation tape, weed barrier fabric, and black poly for 7 vegetable beds in the summer fields.
  • Volunteers got over 250 seedlings into the ground, including Cauliflower, Squash, Cucumbers, Broccoli, and Kale.
  • Charlotte guided us with a tour through the beautiful Earthwise community, hummingbird, and five-senses gardens.
  • We got to shop at the Earthwise farm store (I bought some Red Russian Kale, Spinach, and some really cool looking scarlet runner beans!)
