About a dozen people, including volunteers from the Naval Nuclear Power Training Unit and friends of Susan Bokan, started working on the raised beds today.
The raised beds are made of a rot resistant hemlock. The volunteers constructed the beds, moved them into place, leveled them and got them ready to be filled with soil.
Everyone worked hard and by the end of the day more than a dozen raised beds were constructed and the planting of the ‘Welcome Circle,’ a butterfly garden, was started. The garden is beginning to take shape. Hats off to the volunteers!
A crew will be at Wesley tomorrow continuing the job.
See the mound of soil in the second photo? It won’t be long before we are filling the beds and planting our first crops.
