Those Big Yellow Bags
Last week the Shalom Teaching Garden received its delivery of 2 big yellow bags of black garden soil and 2 big yellow bags of wood chip mulch. Receiving a delivery at Churchill Park was quite a spectacle and children at the nearby playground were amazed to see the truck unload the 4 bags!
Then came the hard work!
With the help of some able bodied teenagers the soil was shovelled into wheel barrows and distributed into the various beds in the teaching garden. The rich black soil is a wonderful addition to top of our beds and we even created a new garden bed! Our central star garden got a complete overhaul by digging up all the existing, overgrown plants and weeds and a filling with fresh soil, new plantings and a generous covering of mulch! How happy everything looks!
Now the long sunny days will nurture our plants and nudge them along their growth cycle. Our team of waterers will visit daily to make sure our plants are never thirsty.
Come by and visit our Shalom Teaching Garden, behind Temple Anshe Sholom at 215 Cline Ave North, Hamilton, Ontario.
