End of Summer Garden Update & Work Party

30 Aug

Hello Denton Community Demonstration Garden friends,

Things have been incredibly busy down at the Artsway in Denton. Can’t believe that summer is nearly over already. A lot of activity has taken place in the Denton Community Demonstration Garden getting the infrastructure in place while tending the garden beds, etc. Here is a brief summary of what has transpired so far:

– The underground cistern and pathways, a project of the Denton Development Corp. and the Town of Denton, has been completed.

– With the help of Habitat for Humanity, the central garden platform installation is nearing completion. Only the handicap accessible connection from the platform to the pathway remains to be installed.

– Decorative fencing has been purchased and is waiting to be installed.

– A pergola has been made and is waiting to be installed.

– The 6 garden boxes and 2 in-ground beds have been planted and harvested, with the food being distributed to the Samaritan House food bank.

– A compost bin has been installed on the site.

– A octagonal bench with a center flower box is being constructed by CCTC students.

– 4th Friday garden talks have started on site.

We still have work to do and hope that you can join us on Saturday, September 8, from 8:00 to 11:00am to help with the following tasks:

– Move the mulch pile

– Move the garden boxes into place

– Install the decorative fencing

– Other garden tasks

– Participate in a group discussion to help plan future garden activities

We hope to see you on Saturday September 8, your participation will help make this a successful community project. Please let me know if you plan to attend or, if you can’t attend, but are interested in actively participating in this project.

Please feel free to forward this info to someone you think might be interested!
