First, a big thank you to all of our donors so far--we're almost halfway there! Please be sure to share info about the project with anyone you think is interested in the kind of work we're doing at Wildcliff.
Second, about the garden itself. Some seeds need to be started now indoors before they're planted outdoors. Leonard's working on some peas, and I've got some rainbow chard and cherry tomatoes going. This is how the planting went down... can't wait to get these in the garden on the 22nd!

Name a ladybug! We'll be releasing ladybugs on the day of the Plant'N'Picnic, and we'll read out the name(s) you've selected before we wish the ladybugs well on their way. We'll also post the list of ladybug names on our website. They can be cute, funny, silly, whatever, so long as they're PG (ok maybe PG-13. But nothing obscene; you get the idea).Estimated delivery: Apr 2012

We *could* just call it 'the first garden'… but why, when you can name it something better? We'll put up a sign so that everyone who comes to our summer events will see your awesomely chosen name where the green growing things are. Same rules apply for the garden name as for ladybug names.Estimated delivery: Apr 2012
