King St. Community Garden Build Day Part 2 : When Compost Attacks

Hello Everyone,

Thanks to a wonderful group of volunteers we were able to build 44 of our 46 raised beds at the King St. memorial park last Saturday.  Unfortunately we only managed to fill several of the beds due to a scheduling conflict with the bobcat operator.  This Saturday we will be getting together at King St. at 8am to finish what we started.  Baring any acts of nature we should be done before lunch. 

What will we be doing?

We will be building the 2 remaining raised beds.
We will be moving several of the raised beds to form a new row on the left side of the garden. 
We will be moving beds out of the way to allow the bobcat access to the blocked in beds, and then back into position to be filled in turn.
We will also be anchoring beds in their final locations with the central stakes so they can be filled by the bobcat.

What should I bring?

If you have a cordless drill bring it along.  My DeWalt should easily get us through the two beds and side stakes, but as last Saturday taught us backup helps.

Where do I sign up?

Just reply to this e-mail if you can make it.

Thank you for all your support!

Chris Clay, The Franklin Community Garden Committee, and Friends of Franklin Community Gardens, Inc.
