2010 Fence project

Once again the gardeners and garden supporting volunteers came through in a huge way on Sunday the 13th.  We attached over two hundred rails to eighty plus posts to create nearly eight hundred feet of perimeter fence.  There is still a bit of work to do on the fence, such as adding mesh to the lower section to keep out the deer and rabbits and building a couple of gates.  The fence serves to delineate the boundaries of the garden park... [Read More...]
