Kavanah Garden Photo Update!

Here's a look at what's been happening at the Kavanah Garden in the last couple of weeks!

We installed our first mezuzah on the grape vine arbour at the garden's entrance.

We finished building our composting centre out of reclaimed wooden skids.
According to the rabbis, a richteous person is one who wastes not even a mustard seed!

We designed a constructed a rain water catchment system off of one of our sheds.
With all of the rain we've been getting these last few weeks, we haven't had to make the trip down to the stream for water in a while!

We built an upside down tomato something or other! That's right....in those buckets, we have tomato plants planted upsdide down. It's an experiment!
We also planted pole beans and climbing nasturtiums at the base of the strings.

We finished our Magen David raised wildflower bed!
The bed is now planted with native wildflower seeds, which will help to attract pollinators and other beneficial insects to our garden!

The Tikkun Adamah CSA, in partnership with the Cutting Veg Organic Farm is going strong! Farmer Daniel Hoffman and his interns are providing CSA members with the freshest, localest, organicest produce around!

Our potatoes are very happy growing in old car tires!

Weeding our Pe'ah bed where we've planted corn, beans, and squash (also known as the "Three Sisters" - a First Nations example of companion planting.)

Inspecting the squash...

Our first Patty Pan summer squash!!!

We inocculated logs with mushroom spores.
In the fall we should have our first crop of white and blue oyster mushrooms!

We planted three different varieties of radishes! All seem pretty happy :)

It is such a blessing to be growing food and community on this land!
We're at the garden every Tuesday and Thursday from 3-7.
Feel free to stop by to volunteer, learn a little, or simply enjoy the space!
Wishing you and yours a growthful summer season!
