Spring Cleaning in the Garden

We had our annual spring cleaning at the Center a couple weeks ago on a gorgeous, unexpectedly warm Northern California day.

Usually we go all out and tidy the garage, clean up the practice hall, and put folks to work in all of the common areas of the house. This year we focused on the garden and several community members came out to help weed, replant, trim, and shape all sorts of growing things.

Out of the process we’re on our way to a raised vegetable garden, trimmed horsetail, and fewer low hanging branches. Things look quite spruced up.
