In just a few short weeks, the Humanity House Community Garden will be open for the 2019 growing season. We are excited for the opportunity to spend three more seasons outdoors, in the dirt, growing lots of delicious produce for our friends and neighbors. Over the past three years, we have grown over 19,000 pounds of produce that was given to others at our Fresh For You produce distributions.
This will be our second season as owners of the community garden. We have some exciting things planned and maybe some surprises. Trench composting is on the list of new things for this year. Basically, every household scrap (excluding meat/bones/fat) can be saved in a container in the freezer then brought to the garden. We will put it, and some soil and garden debris into a hole, along with a few red wigglers and cover the hole. When we come back, compost!
Every year we discover new things. Some work for us, some dont. Either way, we are always excited to give it our best shot.
