The recently installed planter boxes in the College Community Garden are now filled with compost soil and ready to be planted, thanks to the staff members and students who took part in a voluntary garden work day on Friday, July 13.
Beginning at 7 a.m., the team of gardeners were out in full force, armed with gloves, shovels and wheelbarrows -- and ready to move some dirt!
You’ll recall that earlier this summer local high school student Brad Johnston and his fellow scouts from Boy Scout Troop 228 volunteered to build and install the garden’s planter boxes. The idea to help our Campus Community Garden grow must have caught on, because the college has since had a second group of scouts, led by student Alex Borsotti, organize a volunteer project to construct and install the garden’s new compost bins.
If you haven’t had a chance to see this area of campus, be sure to stop by and see how things are coming together!The College Community Garden is scheduled to open in August.
