Garden Workday - Preparing the Terraced Garden Site

  • We will need lots of hands to help us ready the place where our community learning garden is going to go. It is on a steep slope and the plan is to install a terraced garden with five levels, each having it's own small retaining wall to prevent erosion. We will have someone cut the terraces out with a bobcat for us and will then need volunteers to help put cinder-blocks in place for the retaining walls.
