Last weekend a scout from our local boy scout troop started his Eagle project to make a bulletin board for our community gardens. A group of 6 or 8 kids, a bunch of parents (and a couple dogs) dug two 4 foot deep holes. They mixed cement and filled footings in the holes. The footings will allow them to set up their hand made board in a month or so – after our ground has frozen.
The scout has done a lot of work to design a nice board. It will have two sides. The front will be plexi covered and locked for official garden notices, the back will be open so that gardeners can post notices to each others. We are hoping it will be used to arrange seed/vegetable swaps, post events and gardening tips, etc. A good way to build communication.
