It was just a few short years ago where a Saturday volunteer day at the LaSalle Square Unity Garden was a lonly affair for me. Most Saturday's one or no volunteers would show up in the garden. Well that sure has changed. On Saturday we had several volunteers in our main garden, we had our Jr. Master Gardeners Kids class, we had garden leaders stopping by to pick-up plants, and we had gardeners working in our new Garden to Market Educational Area. What a busy day. On Sunday I had several people stop by just to check in , Peace Bees came out to teach me some beekeeping tips, and we had Cyndi working in her plots. Oddly enough after I left Sunday Sylvia worked on her edible weed plot, Jim dropped off grass clippings, and we had a random bee box donation. Yes the Gardens are teaming with life....Summer is here.
