June 16 Garden Work Day

Harry C. checked the Demonstration Garden before our 6:30pm Ecology Meeting 6/8/2011

6/10/2011 From Susan: “The spring work day for the demonstration garden is set for Thursday, June 16, at 8:00 AM. For new comers, the garden is located across the road from the GVM office. We welcome any and all who would like to stop by the garden to check it out or join us in pulling a few weeds, pruning bushes, planting new vegetation, etc.  It’s a great way to get your hands dirty and meet some new folk! Don’t forget sunscreen, hats, and water bottle.”

I transplanted 4 or 5 to our property, siting most on a south-facing bank that has very lean soil, and planted one of the sagebrushes to the east. Continue reading Transplanting Mountain Sagebrush
