Hi Friends of The Lord’s Acre,
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean the Lord’s Acre is resting. At the garden, the cover crops are growing, snow is adding nitrogen to the soil, and the scarecrows are hibernating. In the winter, we also write grants, go over last year’s efforts to see where we can improve, garden plan, network, flesh out five and ten year plans, research, organize-organize-organize, seek interns, and in general try to make this the best garden of its kind anywhere.
This week, Fairview resident David Cobb, brought us ten benches (see photos) he and his fellow scouts made for his Eagle Scout project. We can’t wait to use them in 2011 as they will allow us to seat at least 20 additional people. We’ve already had a requests for the plans which can be Googled under: ‘The Aldo Leopold Bench’.
Here’s a list of those involved:
Scout Troop 77 – Scout Master Dan Berger
Eagle Scout: David Cobb III
Assisters: Nathan & Will Rennard, Duncan Dorris, Phillip Gibson, Josiah Goodrum, William & Hudson Cobb, and David Cobb Jr.
Thanks for your support. Feedback and involvement is always welcome.
This is your garden. We hope you feel that.
The Lord’s Acre Board
