Community Children’s GardenPosted: June 12, 2012
Several community garden members and one Board member got together on Saturday to help plot out the Children’s Garden. We planted strawberries, pumpkins, lamb’s ear, mint, a lavender bush, tomatoes, a creeping onion and bean seeds. A small butterfly bush will soon be added. The lay out of the garden and walkway was designed to appeal to children’s senses and create easy interaction as they move throughout the space. Brushing the mint and lavender will release aromas, and the tomatoes, beans and strawberries on the outer edges will let children easily pick from the sides of the bed.
My daughter and I added painted rock critters this morning – two butterflies and one beetle. We will make several more soon.
