On Saturday, 1/16/2016, the UU Youth from Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana braved chilly weather to hoe, dig, rake, and as one youth said “make the green disappear!” In two short hours the congenial group of about 80 youth and adults were able to prepare three 20ft beds and three 10ft beds for planting our spring gardens. We will be planting onions, carrots and lettuces that will be donated to our church kitchen and area food banks. (We used the planting directions from “Bulb Onions a Plenty,” by Bruce on May 22, 2015.) Thanks to Wally, Nelda, Verva, and Ivar, we had enough tools to accomplish the job. By 12:30, everyone had left except George who worked in the rain to fix a broken water line. Thank you, George!
The replacement of the rotted sideboards is well on its way with Bruce M. and Kate’s three beds being completed by a contractor. George and Nathan have lined two of the 20ft beds and will be working on the rest on Wednesdays and Fridays. If you can help with this job, please email Nathan. We would appreciate your help, whether you have a bed or not!
The next workday is scheduled for February 13 and the second Saturdays of the following months. If you would like a bed and/or have questions, email Nathan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for visiting us at bauucgarden.org!
We have a great many pictures to share of today’s work day!
