This weekend the Farm & Garden group of Growing Green met on Saturday morning to tackle some tough tasks on MAP's urban farm.
Task #1: Finish moving gravel into the greenhouse.
Remember the large pile of gravel from a few weeks ago? It's much smaller now! The Farm & Garden group added 40 more loads of gravel to increase the amount of growing space in the aquaponics greenhouse.
Task #2: Remove old railroad ties from the fence line.
The second major job we did on Saturday also involved lots of muscle power. A pile of rotting railroad ties was threatening to knockdown part of the farm fence. Not any more! Piece by piece we carefully moved them to a safer spot.
