First day of spring workparty

Ah glorious spring, that time of year when we shake off the doldrums of the NW winter and enter sunny days with a newfound optimism and enthusiasm. The first day of spring turned out to be the nicest and sunniest day of the year. It was in the 60’s and very warm and delightful outside. We gathered for our monthly Saturday workparty, to shovel 5 cubic yards of Cedar Grove compost and do some garden maintenance. We rejuvenated the garden beds and things are smelling very ripe (no kids- thats not manure!).

The incredible non-profit City Fruit organization had a community workshop on cultivating and pruning fruit trees at Orca. We are happy to host community groups here and be a resource in any way that we can. cityfruit.org. Then check out their incredible tree map of fruit trees in seattle. Amazing!
