Work to be done:
Let me know which garden you'd like to work in and when you can help
Don't do any of this work until you let me know (via text, email or phone message) so I can oversee everyone's efforts and make sure we are working efficiently.
SATURDAY, JULY 9, 12 noon - 2 pmWork with me on both Holladay AND 33rd South C Gardens
Holladay A Garden:
Clean/straighten the greenhouse
Pick all crops in greenhouse (spinach, lettuces, etc.)
Help w/ some weeding
Lay bricks around a garden border
Holladay B Garden:
Plant lots of crops now that the plots are cleaned up
33rd C Garden
Mark this garden w/ pink neon ribbon in preparation of making straight furrows
Using the pointed hoe, make small furrows where the ribbon is
We also need help on Tuesday and Friday at 1 pm w/ irrigation on this property. It's easy work but necessary to monitor this while the water is on.
West Valley City B Garden
Help weed and plant new crops
Those who help us weed and clean up this garden along with replanting will always be rewarded with produce from this garden
Merrill and Christy (home owners really need the help)
Weed in Curly's garden (just west of our garden). Curly irrigates for us and in return we help him weed his garden.
NOTE: This is our largest garden and we need your help staying on top of this property.
Plant more crops in rows at east end. We need to decide how many rows and what will go in there.
Cindy needs a lot of help planting new crops i.e. cucumbers where the peas were and other new crops will go in where the mustard greens were.
Weed garden -- all rows
