Everyday Life in a Garden, a set on Flickr.
I was wandering through the garden last weekend. Looking to see how everyday life was treating our neighbourhood gathering place.
In between chats with folks walking by or resting on the hay bales I took a couple of pictures of some of the details that make me love this place we've built.
Stakes that kids have labelled, companion plants that have been planted near to each other for protection, the first fruits and vegetables that I've seen in the community beds.
It's all just so lovely.
Although, the number of tomato plants budding right now is a great demonstration of foreshadowing for harvest season.
Perhaps a community canning/preservation program for the end of July

Watching our friends, family and neighbours gather together in this new space to eat together was exactly what we had hoped would happen when we started on this journey.
Please contact us if you think you might want to run any community events in The Rail Garden space. We hope that more events like the one last Saturday can take place through the summer.

Now that we have built the first phase of The Rail Garden we want to have more programs like Art in the Garden, School Age Planting Days and maybe some new programming for gardeners and builders.
Let us cook dinner for you AND help position The Rail Garden as an asset not only to the plot gardeners but to the entire community.
If you can't remember how much fun our last Community Dinner was, check out the pictures!

Planting the Garden, a set on Flickr.
Last Saturday we got together in the garden to actually start planting. Some of the Gardeners put in their plots, children started the strawberry garden and the donated plants were delivered.
It's a beautiful thing to see our garden starting to grow. You may notice as you go by over the next few weeks that the community beds are going in and expanding as the local public school classes come up to plant gardens.
We are so excited that our garden is growing now. Every day is a new addition of beauty.
A special thanks to Marc and Shannon who are the reasons that our garden is watered. Fantastic neighbours are making this garden fantastic.
Thanks to everyone for making this a reality.
