The big picture of the garden: each fifth of the pinwheel has a main planting, and can be planted successively with companion herbs and flowers. This Sunday we plan to plant flowers with both the young and older children's classes. There is a ring of sunflowers in the center, and spokes of companion plantings. Herbs and flowers can be continually tucked in, so there is little to no unplanted soil. 

  • The only rule: walk on the cypress mulch paths to preserve the living soil

  • Children's classes will plant seeds and work in the garden every other Sunday.

  • Everyone is welcome to come and sit, meditate, and slow down in this beautiful space we share. And weed and water, if you are so inclined.

  • Everyone is encouraged to contribute in  any way that brings joy, here are a few suggestions but bring your own ideas: planting, documenting, harvesting (eventually), distribution of food to neighbors.
