BEFORE THE SNOW FLIES

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

Towards the end of last gardening season, monies were approved and spent by our benefactors at NGA for improvement projects. Materials were bought and delivered to the garden last fall. At that time we were able to put a roof on the gazebo, re-build the benches that are throughout the garden, and construct covers for the Bar-B-Q pit and the electric meters. This past spring, the builders expended so much energy with the composting toilet project that the other projects were tabled until the cooler weather refreshed the work force. Today as we gather for the annual garden picnic, we should begin planning to accomplish what was  envisioned last year. The entrance to the grape arbor needs to be replaced.  This will involve pouring concrete.

An archway leading to the back of the garden has been proposed for the eastern pathway. This also will involve pouring concrete. The materials for these projects are currently stored in the shed.   As this web site becomes more functional, look for more detailed plans to be proposed, discussed and acted upon.
