The Denton Community Garden breaks ground!

1 Apr

On Saturday, March 31st 2012, the Denton Community Demonstration Garden broke ground with their first planting!  The initial planting utilizes the square foot gardening technique, a unique and efficient  gardening method that has been popularized by gardener Mel Bartholomew.

The group worked to fill the raised beds with a soil mixture of compost, vermiculite and peat moss before planting the early spring veggies. Check out the photos below of the start of the garden!
