We’ve been busy on site, so it’s been a while since this site saw some love. Manheim Park + Garden has seen two major events last month
October 13th, Christmas in October
Via our crowdfunding campaign, we were fortunate to be receive a generous donation of materials and labor from Bayer though Christmas in October. This included a chicken coup, construction of a hoop house (greenhouse,) and mulching of brush from the north end of the site that is become the food forest.
We have immense gratitude toward the folks at Christmas in October and Bayer, whom we were excited to show off our approach to agriculture. These projects are pushing our development ahead nicely.
October 28th, Harvest Festival
The following weekend we hosted Neighbors Helping Neighbors’ 3rd annual Harvest Festival. This neighborhood get together included a potluck, barbecue, taiko performance and the event was followed by an evening local poetry collective performance.
We’re continuing to move forward on preparing the food forest and establishing a rain collection system. As always, come by Sundays between 10am-2pm to say hi to us, see the site, or help out. Walk-ins welcome, we love meeting you all.
