Community Gardening

Last Friday our company closed it's doors so the employees could head out into the community and volunteer. My group went to the Hayes Valley Farm, a community garden built on the former 101 on/off ramp. We learned how to create dirt out of old cardboard boxes and horse manure, grow potatoes in a cylinder made of chicken wire and painted signs to display around the garden. I was inspired to start my own mini-food garden so hopefully we'll start that in the near future!
