This past Saturday the University of Mary Washington Ecology Club made a stop by our gardens to help us with a couple of projects! The morning started off with a tour of the lower and upper gardens where they could try edible flowers, take a bite of some ripe figs, and be introduced to a handful of new projects we have our eyes set on.
It didn't take long for these awesome students to get involved! Raking and transporting fallen leaves to one of the compost locations in the upper gardens was taken on by majority of the group. The rest of the members worked to build a new wall for behind our bee hives!
It's not everyday that we get a volunteer turn out like we did on Saturday morning. We appreciate all the assistance and help that the UMW Ecology Club and other volunteers offered us on a chilly morning!
