A year in the making, our grand opening is set for Monday, June 2nd from noon to 2pm. Mayor Svante Myrick will be here to plant a fruit tree and cut a ribbon on our beautiful new sign, courtesy of the wonderful Master Gardener Angela Loh. There will be refreshments and tours of our new plantings. This is a big moment for us, as well as anyone that has helped out in the past year. Come on over to celebrate and learn more about edible landscaping!
In preparation, we are holding a work session this coming Tuesday, May 20th, from 4-6:30 pm. We’ll be labeling our new plantings and putting together simple rabbit cages for some of the more vulnerable ones. We’ve got just a bit more sheet mulching to do, and we also have some new plants to put in. The weather forecast has been kind to us and this will be a great chance to get things in tip-top shape for the ribbon cutting and for the summer. We hope to see you there!
Check back in upcoming days for more updates about the ribbon cutting ceremony.
