Time to put the gardens to bed

October 21, 2015

Land is at a premium in Waterville Valley; so, we are lucky to have a nice plot of land next to the Rey Center’s Curious George Cottage designated as a community garden.

The community garden needs some help from the community!  Fall is upon us, and that means it’s time to put the gardens to bed.

There will be a community work day on Thursday, Oct. 29, starting at 12 noon.  It’s time to pull the remaining plants in the beds and lay down some leaf mulch and cottonseed meal to reintroduce essential nutrients to the soil for the next growing season.

Rey Center program specialist (and excellent soup chef), Katie Morrison, will be providing some warm soup and snacks.

Please stop by and help out.

“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.” ~ Alfred Austin
