Willing Hands on a Hot Morning

We started off this week with the help of three volunteers from the pharmaceutical company Janssen, who came to us via our main sponsor, United Way. Craig and Brad spent the morning clearing around the red currant and black currant bushes. Making space around the bushes keeps them disease-free, and means more fruit next year. Mary-Jane worked very hard on weeding the herb and perennial bed. She was on hands and knees, pulling out the various little plants that want to share the space and the nutrients in the garden. We received a delivery of composted manure, so they helped carry that and dump it out of the bags ready to be used in the garden. They all worked so hard and were interested in what we do at the Farm. We are very grateful for their contribution, and hope they will come again soon.
