Wednesday May 28 will be a great night to gather and meet each other, work in the garden and learn at our chapter community garden located on the Duluth Lakewalk a few blocks east of Fitgers, just across the pedestrian bridge from First Lutheran Church. Bring a lawn chair and dress for the weather. We will provide heavy snacks & lemonade.

The schedule for the evening looks like this:

4:30 – 5:30 garden maintenance early time slot – come one, come all, bring a little weeding hand tool or a big edging shovel or just your gloves and we will provide the weeds to pull and perhaps a plant or two to plant

5:30 – 6:00 garden tour

6:00 – 6:30ish Heather Wright Wendel and Carol Andrews will explain the “hugelkultur” concept that can be used to create a type of raised bed for vegetables, orchards (ala Duluth Grill), and could be used for native plants too (http://www.richsoil.com/hugelkultur/ )

6:30 – 7:30ish another garden maintenance time slot
