Here we are heading into winter at Beban Learning Gardens! We have just finished building 12 spacious compost boxes. Thanks again to Sawmill Direct for helping us out with their fine cedar lumber.
After Christmas we can dismantle our temporary wooden-pallet style boxes which actually served us very well. In place of them, we hope to plant a few more fruit trees early in the spring, being sure to give them time to become established before the hot dry weather later on.
We are happy to announce that we will be able to extend our Saturday morning work parties, at least until the end of March. Both Wednesday and Saturday groups will soon be busy starting seedlings for planting and for sale in the spring. New volunteers are welcome to join us at any time.
