Spring is here

Spring is here!

We are beginning work on the 35th and Hawthorne “Secret Garden”. Work parties are scheduled for every Sunday. Meet in front of Noah’s Bagel’s at S.E. 35th and Hawthorne at 11 am. We will walk to the garden promptly at 11:15.

This week we need lots of helping hands! The garden is full of weeds. All of the soil needs to be turned, the weeds removed, and cardboard put down as a weed blocker. If there is time, we can begin building the peas trellis.

What to bring? Your smiling faces! This is a great time to get involved and learn about springtime garden planning.

Access to the garden in only permitted during work party times, unless you have received permission from myself or Brian saying otherwise.
I can be contacted for suggestions or concerns at 503.358.9456.

Thanks, I hope to see you soon! – Skye Blue

Busy Summer

So it’s been three months since I last updated the blog. Guess it’s hard to spend time blogging when there’s so much to do.

Also if you didn’t know it was a hot summer.

Current status of spaces we have been involved with are:

SE 35 and Hawthorne lot is doing great with lots of produce including corn, onions, garlic, basil, loveage, zucchini, and more. The fruit trees and grapes we planted are all doing well getting established. Work days are currently on Weds, but best to contact Skye Blue on that.

Space produced A LOT of Peas in the Spring.

Here’s a neat pararama of the space taken in July

Recap on past two weeks

We have gotten SE 35th and Hawthorne space to a pretty good place and keeping up with it. Regular work party 1st and 3rd Saturdays at 12(noon).

SE 24 and Ankeny is now mostly cleared out thanks to a get turn out for Max Rameau visit to work party. Max shared the community work he is doing in Miami, Fl with his group Take Back the Land(www.takebackthelabd.org). Truly inspiring forward visioning and action on the relationship between humans and land.

SE 24 and Ankeny: Regular work party 2nd and 4th Saturdays at 12(noon).

New picture of both site to come soon.

We have been getting a flood of people wanting to get involved and people in communities that have land and know of vacant land that could be used for creating gardens and healthy gathering spaces.

So we are going to start a project similar to yardshare or collaborate with them on it. Our current issue is yardshare does not differentiate between public and private spaces(ie. backyard gardens). Also little documentation of current status.

We would like a tool for use to basically approve a new site with a few details met for space and connection to people maintaining space.
Through this process we hope to be able to add more spaces more rapidly.

We are also going to work on volunteer intake so:
Asking some stuff like this

area of city:
best hours:
knowledge of gardening?
