As some of you will know already, this year I am planning to plant a garden to supply vegetables for the Agape Drop-in, and I am hereby officially extending an invitation to anyone who would like to assist.
Since this is the first year, we will be planting only root vegetables that we can grow with minimal maintenance and that the drop-in can store with minimal effort, potatoes and carrots mostly. The garden will be located on a little property that we have been calling The Foundry, which can be accessed by a little laneway off of Division Street near Woolwich (I will post a flag), and we will be meeting this coming long weekend to break ground and begin planting. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join us on Saturday the 21st and Monday the 23rd from 1:00 to 4:00. We would love to see you there, even if you can stay just long enough to see the place.
If you would like to support the project but are not able to help with the actual gardening, we are still looking for a few things, and we would really appreciate it if you could supply some of them: a second rain barrel, a second wheel barrow, a couple of garden rakes, and some garden hoses that are in decent shape. Also, if someone has a pick-up truck that we could borrow on the Saturday to take a load of garbage to the dump, that would be very helpful as well.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like any further information.
