Providence Gardens are growing and bursting with life. Craig planted red clover in his community garden plot; it will be tilled under to enrich the soil. Craig reports “the Presbees apiary has had an active spring, and the number of colonies has grown to a total of five hives. While honey production for this year remains a question mark, we’re certainly doing our part for the environment by increasing the number of healthy pollinators. The bees asked me to express their sincere gratitude for the support they’ve receive from PPC.”
The Girl Scouts planted a new pollinator garden next to the old one, and will be in charge of watering and weeding it. Keith is preparing the soil for a lavender bed, transforming Carolina red clay into Mediterranean soil conditions.
Several birdhouses line the perimeter of Providence Gardens. At least one is inhabited by bluebirds. The perimeter is mowed and can be walked.
Tim and Elaine plowed and tilled the gleaning garden.Daisy, Dee, Dudley and Linda planted vegetables. Volunteers are needed to water it and can sign up on Sign Up Genius.
The community gardens are being planted.
Let’s see what bounty summer brings.
