Another great work day!

Another wave of new friends joined us this past weekend for our second Rose City Community Garden Work Day. Although it was the same weekend as Sailfest, we had a great turnout. We marked, dug, and leveled 5 plots in preparation for raised beds! A few folks brought extra tools to share. and there were even some blueberries fresh from a local Farmer's Market. Good times, good times. You can't stop progress! Thanks again for all the teamwork, and we'll see y'all soon!
