MGs & Interns,
As the MG course winds down and the last day of class approaches I just want to remind all the interns that not only the garden team, but the executive committee, members at large and team leaders all stand ready to assist you in any way we can to meet your certification requirements over the next year. It has been a pleasure getting to know many of you at the garden and I look forward to working with the rest of you over the coming months. I hope you take full advantage of the many opportunities provided at the garden to expand and put to use your new horticultural knowledge.
Many thanks to all of you who braved the gusty north wind Saturday to come out to the Veteran’s Memorial Park to help in cleaning out and replanting the flower beds and planting the Blue Point Junipers at the park’s entry wall. The park looked so much better for our efforts and I’m sure will please those attending the Veteran’s Day ceremonies.
It looks like we have found a new, dependable source for mulch for our test garden beds just in time for winter. Luckily, we have access to a front end loader, tractor and trailer through James Butaud and Herbert Bass and if the weather co-operates, we’ll begin hauling some of this new found bounty to the garden next Friday. The weather will be warming again and the winds will be dying down by mid week so I hope to see many of you out there enjoying our ever improving garden.
Thanks again to all of you who have been putting in so much extra work and time and have even “adopted” a bed.
The Garden Team
