Update #7

Calling all Volunteers! Saturday, July 7, 11AM-2PM

Comment

The parklet, despite its current barren state, is a charmer. In fact, it's already functioning beautifully as the perfect hang-out spot for neighbors and passersby. If you haven't yet had a chance to stop by to see the beauty and touch the magic, you really need to come see it in person.

The actual construction is complete; at this point only the landscape work is missing…and we'd love to have your help with that.

We've scheduled a massive mound of soil to be delivered to Farm:Table's door this Saturday, July 7th.

With your help, from 11AM - 2PM, we'll be shoveling a mountain of soil from the sidewalk up into the parklet's planters, then seeding the surface with a temporary trial planting of lovely no-mow fescue-grass. (The final landscape design of the garden is a bit more elaborate, and will be planted a several months from now allowing the soil to settle in the meantime.)

Wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty, and plan to spend some quality time with us on Saturday! We can use all the help we can get. :)

Thanks for all of your wonderful kickstarter support earlier this year. Now it's finally time to get your hands dirty! 

See you Saturday,

Friends of the FarmTable

PS - If you have a shovel or a wheelbarrow we can use, let me know. Your tools may come in handy.
