Getting started

Getting set up…

The day was cloudy and thankfully not too hot for getting all of our garden boxes unloaded and moved into position. The north end of our new site at the Oliver Community Arts Council site is now set up and ready for dirt, which has been delivered.

There are still a lot of rocks to move from the south end and we are still in need of some filler dirt or gravel the make the south end a little more level before the boxes get filled on that side. It is still a little treacherous to walk on all those large rocks and so we will be moving them and perhaps using them in the bottom of the planter boxes as fill. Our garden tools (rakes, shovels, trowels, etc) that we had at the last location are now on site in the cabin and are ready to go as soon as we can get the beds filled and water taps and hoses installed.

It’s turning into a beautiful area and we hope that you are able to come down and check it out as the spring progresses. If you’d like to help out in any way, please let us know by email or phone Heather at 250-485-2575.
