And We’re Off and Growing in 2016!
May 26, 2016 The RCS Giving Garden is tilled, staked, fenced, irrigated and planted for the 2016 season! On Monday, May 25th RCS staff and nine Master Gardeners from Washington County worked together to make the garden come to life for its 8th year. I’m so grateful to be part of this garden once again and send out a huge THANKS to all who have helped with the many details and tasks necessary to get this plot of land off and growing once again.
On Wednesday, May 25th, a group of UPS employees came out to the garden, as they do every year, to work on putting up the perimeter fence while RCS staff worked on finishing the irrigation system. Fencing the garden requires much labor trench digging, unrolling metal fence rolls that always seem to want to bite a person, zip-tying and back-filling! Great work folks! We got the job just about completed before the thunder, lightning and monsoon rains came through...hence the final photo standing in the garden shed! Thanks so much for your service to the community today! We will see you later in the season for some harvesting!
