Waggoner students visit FIGG

On this nice Spring day, anyone driving by would notice a bunch of very engaged students at the garden.  Melissa, Pam, Laura, Marni, and Doug had the usual lessons prepared for the young and curious students.  They planted, they touched worms, they made compost, and they even got to spread some peanut butter on the celery harvested from the Children's plot.

Pretty cool experience for all involved.

Plant Sale

Before:  Ideas are discussed, plans are documented, and decisions are made.
Sale Day: Happy shoppers look, touch, discuss, and walk away with goodies for their home gardens.




Oh the buzz and vibe of the place.  It was a soulful experience.

FInal Ground Breaking

Final ground breaking happens best with the help of machines.

A few more plots are almost ready to welcome new garden members.
The hard work is good for the body and builds community.
