West 104th Street Garden

October Workday/Winter Wrapup

Filed under: Meeting Notes — by west104garden @ 5:08 pm

The Saturday Oct. 18 workday was one of our most productive!

Garden members:

1. Pushed wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow of soil up the hill from the East to the West garden, where it was deposited in communal beds and spread over the main and maze lawns. The East garden beds and lawns were treated as well. The dirt mountain is now just a hill.—This was hard labor! Special thanks to the mountain movers. (Also to the anonymous “promoter” who pinned a sign to the hill, “Potting soil–$1,” before the Fall Festival.)

2. Cleared, cleaned, and reorganized the shed in the East garden, which had gotten to be a jumble. Much needed housekeeping.

3. Decorated the garden with hay bales, old and new dolls, skeletons, a spider, pumpkin and ghost balloons, etc. for the Fall Festival. Seasonably scary.

4. Put together yet another bench. Hurray.

Thanks to everyone who pitched in that Saturday –and to those who worked on the mountain by themselves the week before.

There’s a lot more to be done to close down the garden for winter.

Come out this weekend; the weather is gorgeous!
