Hey all-

We have a big work party coming up this Saturday, April 29th, starting at noon, at our Fertility Garden on NE Garfield and Failing (behind Nedd Ludd restaurant). We will work until the work is done, re-covering and repairing the greenhouse, leveling the floor so it is wheelchair accessible, tending to the chicken coupe, weeding and tending the garden beds...SO MUCH TO DO! We'd love all the help we can get! So, if you have any time to give this coming Saturday, please join us! We'll be having a big "thank you" party after with free food and beverages! All are welcome! Please bring gloves and water!
Thank you in advance and we hope to see your shining faces there!ūüėĀ

Welcome to the Birdhouse Garden! The garden is mostly situated in the backyard where at one time there was only lawn. With a little planing, sheet mulching and sweat the garden birthed into a beautiful vegetable growing space.

In 2012, we had a bumper crop of tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers. In 2013, the rotation continued with root crops.  Some of the varieties included: bulls blood beets, rainbow chard, red onions, cipollini onions, and leeks. In 2014 we are growing brassicas and various members of the carrot family.

2014 Summer Solstice Update:  So far we have harvested nearly 200 lbs of organic vegetables and more is certainly on the way.  Our turnip and radish crops have been impacted critically by root maggots.  Some of the cabbages have been stunted by a lack of available water but at least 1/3 will be ready at the expected harvest date.
