Manheim Garden Updates

Sunday, the gardners re-habed the wildflower garden, removing invasive ground cover, poison ivy and planting more native flowers.

This week, they were also able to install two wire arches for cucumbers in the east communal area. The vines will cover the wire cage, and the cucumbers will hang down under the arch when mature.

The garden was also given these two lovely insulated boxes for the tribe of neighborhood cats that frequent the garden. You may have noticed the wet stretch of sidewalk on the west side of the community garden. Our horticulturist, Jill DeWitt, is meeting with a geologist to investigate what may be a natural spring in the garden, and to see how best we can use it as we develop the Forest Avenue frontage.
