Three Brothers Garden, 4107 N. Pulaski
Master Gardener Dolly Foster will follow up her popular butterfly gardening lecture with a talk about composting.  Dolly will explain the basics, the benefits and review the composting “dos” and “don’ts.” Experienced composters can weigh in with their own experiences.
All classes are held in the garden (or inside if weather is poor) and are free.  Donations toward the maintenance of the garden are welcome.

Garden Shed Complete! 

Remember all that voting you did a year ago so that Three Brothers Garden could win the Organic Gardening Magazine/DeLoach Vineyard grant?  Well, we’ve completed our garden shed, one of the projects we sought funding for.  See the photo to the right.
Thanks to Boy Scout Troop 863 and Nils Clausen for building the shed for Nils’ Eagle Scout project and to garden coordinator Kurt Schroeter for adding cedar siding.  Paul Clausen and Gordon Johnson provided much appreciated construction expertise.  Up next — our solar lighting project.
Thanks for voting — it paid off!
Thank you for your support!
