The vision for these gardens is to grow food crops using organic, sustainable methods.
Raised beds have benefits-
- Grow food everywhere by building good soil up, even in marginal areas
- Reduce compaction by walking around the plantings, not on the soil- more oxygen for roots!
- Extend the growing season- soil warms up earlier in the spring
- Allows for good drainage
Welcome to the Williston Community Garden! The purpose of this blog is to keep the communtity informed about our School Garden. Please reply if you have something to share, an interesting observation, or a question to ask.
Thanks to the Garden Club participants, Nick Pattison and Joey Newlin, we have a new sign by the gardens. Stop by and see how things are growing behind 194 Main Street dorm.
Special thanks also to physical plant, Ms. Hume and Mr. Niedswicki
