Today we planted the garden. Don’t all those green leaves look great? We have an assortment of tomatoes, peppers, watermelon, kale, collards, basil and many other delicious varieties! Each bed was planted strategically to optimize the sunlight and the shade. All the plants came from the Sol Food Mobile Farm greenhouse in the back of the bus!
After planting all the plants in the greenhouse, we filled the containers back up with soil and planted new seeds for the next garden that Sol Food Mobile Farm will build on their cross-country journey.
After a day of planting, we had a pizza party to celebrate a great job!
This sign of all participants will be hung in the garden this weekend. A HUGE thank you to Sol Food Mobile Farm for coming out and making this happen. The four members are Dylan Hammond, Eliza Bordley, Ellen Duda, and Reid Rosemond. They are volunteers and are doing great work, funding their operation with donations.

I would also like to thank Little Berlin members Alana Bograd, Alex Walcroft, Samantha Reedy and Eileen Doyle for coming out and doing some amazing work.
