Singing in the Rain

Tonight the raindrops did not stop [most of] the workers from working, although we were missing our younger cohorts in cultivation.  With eager hope and expectation of water, we planted peppers and tomato plants.  Thankfully, even if we aren’t able to get water from the city we now have a handy irrigation system set up.  And what do you know — it’s RAINING!  If any of you plan on growing in third-world-countries in the near future, let us know and we will send you the blueprint for our giant ‘water tank.’  I think I’ll call it Moby Dick.

Seedling Sale

Last Sunday, Garfield Community Farm began selling seedlings to the community to usher the neighborhood into growing season while raising money for the farm.  We will be at the Union Project from 3pm-6pm for the next to Sundays (5/24 and 5/31).  The Union Project is located at the corner of Stanton and Negley. Directions can be found here.
