Thank you Garden Volunteers

Big thanks to our Britannia School Garden volunteers for helping to keep the gardens looking great. This past Saturday we pruned all our apple espalier trees and were treated to a few hidden apples not yet picked and possibly some of the best apples I have ever eaten. We also cleaned up the compost area, also pruned our raspberries, and did some weeding. The Britannia School Gardens are now quite extensive and include 5 garden areas that are spread around the Britannia site, including our potato boxes at the elementary school. Maintaining these gardens is more than we can manage working just with students, thus community volunteers are essential for this work. And as always, we welcome more volunteers. It’s great to connect with the earth and is also a fun social activity.
