A big, fat THANK YOU to RWC, Dick Pierce and RWCEG volunteers!

It was a beautiful, not-windy, evening under the twinkling lights of the garden.  Children running in and out with fresh picks to place amongst the delicious dips and treats lovingly prepared by our garden fairies.  We had a nice group of women (and even some men!) come to hear Dick Pierce extol the virtues of clean, garden living.  He challenged us to live simply, 800 sq.ft. per person is plenty and plant more compact, raised bed gardens, (4'x4' and 8 hours of sun is all you need) in our FRONT lawns to create community.  He suggested planting more fruiting trees and what might work around garden; pomegranate, pear, plum and even some apple varieties.

I think the RWC is already planning to plant some dedication trees...

All in all, it was a great night for community and discussion about sustainability.  Thank you so much to all of you who came out, helped out and participated in our great garden experiment!
