2008 workshops.....

Below you will find the schedule of community gardening workshops we will be participating in, along with our friends from Anathoth Community Garden in Cedar Grove, Come to the Table (a venture of the NC Council of Churches), Covenant Community Garden in Fuquay-Varina, and Heifer International. The midday meal will be potluck, and we ask that you bring food as well, BUT, if bringing food is a problem we'd rather have you there. Our flyer is also available in .pdf format.

Garden photos.....

In the beginning.....

Better, huh?

Here's what Seagrove Community Garden looks like after being plowed, tilled, spread with chicken litter, and sown with rye. By next summer, God willing, it will bear some resemblance to the garden of Eden.
