Message from the Howdy Farm:
We need your help this Saturday from 9-12 in cleaning up a new garden area located behind the Horticulture department. The Howdy Farm recently inherited this space and plans to put in black berries, strawberries, kumkwats, and, of course, a variety of interesting vegetables for the spring, but we need your help to get this space cleaned up and ready for planting.
What: Garden Clean-Up and Pizza Party
When: This Saturday, 9-12
Where: Meet at The Farm
We will be cleaning up the existing beds and amending the soil with organic compost; a layer of cardboard will be installed (for water retention and preventative weed control) followed by a layer of mulch. This is a great opportunity to take a break from studying, get experience in the garden, learn a few sustainable techniques, and spend sometime outside on a beautiful day. There will be FREE PIZZA, friendly people, and good dirty fun.
Meet us at the farm at 9 o’clock on Saturday morning and we will truck it on over to the gardens. See you then!
Thanks and Gig’em,
-The Howdy Farmers
