As a reminder, the planting beds are community beds and open to any Alamo Heights resident who wants to participate. We will share what we grow. So if you are interested in planting seeds or plants, please stop by anytime. If you do plant seeds, please mark where and what you planted so we do not plant on top of your seeds. We have soil in most of the beds, and as soon as we have some dry weather, we will finish fill the other beds.
Planning ahead: I have contacted Fanick’s Nursery about setting up a “Garden Registry” for those interested in donating fruit trees. I should hear from them next week. If this goes through, anyone will be able to purchase a tree at Fanick’s for planting in the community garden. The Nursery will hold the trees, so we can pick them up and plant them all at once. Shades of Green recommended that I contact Fanick’s as Fanick’s has the largest variety of suitable fruit trees. Please check out their website www.fanicknursery.com
The next planned work day is:
22 January - Planting day and filling the small planting beds with soil (weather permitting). I will be there from 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM, but you are welcome to come by at anytime.
