Karla Cook, Co-Founder of Princeton Schools Garden Cooperative has some good news to share about the recent John Witherspoon Edible Gardens workday:
"It was out with the old, and in with the new last Saturday at the JW Edible Gardens!
Thanks to an extraordinary effort by volunteers from the community and from the school, and with fuel from Small World Coffee, Whole Earth Center, Terra Momo, Nutri-Serve Food Management, Terhune Orchards and Lillipies, and a proclamation from Mayor Liz Lempert, we did it!
From 7:30-4:30, we deconstructed twelve old beds, then, built, moved and filled twelve gorgeous new Bountiful Boxes garden beds in the allée between the school wall and the chainlink fence along the soccer field.
We are endlessly grateful to each person who pitched in and especially to those who stayed till everything for the edible gardens and for the JW Outdoor Classroom was put in its proper place.
Next up: A small shed for storing equipment, drip irrigation hoses with couplers and a timer, a produce-washing sink, and maybe even a sweet garden gate at either end.
Oh, and seeds and seedlings and garden gloves.”
A big thank you to Karla Cook and all the volunteers who worked on the John Witherspoon Edible Gardens.
