RWCEG Wicking Bed Project

Rollingwood community, come join us at the RWCEG garden this Saturday, October 25 to participate in our Wicking Garden Bed Project!

Recently, garden bed 1 has been rebuilt with cinder blocks. The next step in the project is to install the wicking system. We need volunteers to help cart gravel from the RW City Hall parking lot to the RWCEG garden. At 9:30 am, a team with two trucks will meet at the RW City Hall parking lot to go to Daniel Stone Company (12015 W Hwy 290 near Nutty Brown Cafe) to purchase smooth river rock and pebbles. We will be back by noon. We would appreciate volunteers to help cart the river rock from the parking lot to the garden. Please bring buckets, hand carts, wheel barrels, and shovels if you have any of these resources to help cart these stones.

We hope this will also be an educational experience to help people learn about the gardening advantages and construction details of a wicking bed.
