Allen Hansen, James Weber and Donna Moore have been faithful volunteers, working hard to get the garden boxes ready for this year’s planting season at the Community Garden. Photo submitted.

The Fox Creek Community Garden is prepping for the season.

On May 4, volunteers topped up the garden boxes with extra soil and peat moss. The group also has a new cultivating tool that was purchased with the money raised from the bottles Lynne Parent and Al Hansen collected.

Currently there is 35 boxes ready to be planted in!

Millar Western donated more wood, enabling eight more boxes to be built. All garden boxes are rented, including the eight that will be built within the next week or two.

Two more owls (to scare away the ravens) and a new compost area that was built out of wooden pallets were added this year. Rockwater is again donating a porta-potty for community members to use throughout the season.

A meeting was held on May 3 for the community gardeners to review the gardening contacts and receive feedback; there is lots of excitement for the 2016 planting season!
