March 21 -- Celebrate and Landscape at the Commons

This coming Saturday, March 21, there will be an open house and celebration of spring at the Commons. The walkabouts, tours and other events begin at 1:00 p.m.

Before that -- you guessed it! -- we are having a work bee. We're continuing with the work of vole-fencing the gardens. We were fortunate to have the use of a mini-excavator, thanks to Gary Oak Tool Rentals, a couple of weeks back. Much trenching was done around the Plotters area and the orchard. Some recycled metal roofing was inserted around the Plotters garden. We've also got quite a bit of metal mesh -- apparently just the thing to send Voles back to their natural diet of grasses and such! So this weekend, work will continue around the fences, adding the mesh and backfilling.

The time -- 9:00 to 11:30 a.m., giving everyone time to be ready to come back to the Commons in the afternoon (clean!) if they wish.
