With the weird and wonky, wet and cold weather this year, it’s been a bit of a challenge to get out into the garden, but we’ve been getting it cleaned up from the winter for the last few weeks and it’s starting to look like a garden again.
If you’re interested in joining us this season, we’d love to have you! Our first official work day will be Saturday, April 15, 2017, from 1-3pm. Feel free to come check out the place and see if it’s something you want to be involved in, or just come out for the afternoon for some time outside and getting your hands in the dirt.
This year, we’re experimenting for the first time with individual plots, in addition to some communal space like we have each year. We have several individuals and families signed up for plots. If you’d like a plot, contact us soon! We’re excited to offer space to Newberg community members who don’t have a space or the know-how to garden on their own, or who simply want to have some accountability and community while they work the land. Participation in the garden for the season is $10/GFU student or $15/community member or GFU staff/faculty.
