I met with Nancy from Parkworks and we visited the site. She likes the site and gave me suggestions for design considerations. She will however get back to us in a few weeks with actual plants and designs considerations for the site. She also recommended that we wait to plant until late september/early october since we have no access to water, and planting in August heat may kill newly planted plants without steady watering. There are some site prep items we can do in the meantime. This gives us an opportunity to fundraise for the garden during the school year as well as recruit new members help in site prep work and landscaping.
Since we live in a democracy,(maybe not in the last 8 years) I wanted to start a blog about our progress on this project, so that it is transparent and not just three people in a dark room making decisions that effect the entire group. Please feel free to comment at any stage.
